Very few artists share ambition like Leonardo Barilaro. Having his music streamed from the International Space Station, this master craftsman has been making evocative, transformative music for years now. His latest composition takes it one step further, watching a star take shape through nothingness. This is Chrysalis.
The overview effect must have a profound, moving feel for many people who have had the chance to see the world from space. Leonardo Barilaro has probably had that ability as an innate element of his present self. The kind of melodies that this song carries pushes the abilities of the music that belongs to Earth. The sustain pedals are used economically, to create phrasings that etch themselves in your mind. Sitting on his Zanta Pianoforti, Leonardo composes something that extends beyond the human spirit. You can read more about his brilliant endeavours in “Music from Space”, his book. If you think ambition has limit, hear the following. He will be leading ASTROBEAT, a space mission aboard the ISS that he will be leading. Exploring instrumentals in all forms, there is a possibility that we will see a concert in Mars hosted by Leonardo very soon. He is, what the race strives to be for art.
His songs like Of Course I Still Love You bring a wave of emotions you might not feel with many other instrumentals. Someone who always wants to push the boundaries, whether it be the stratosphere. Leonardo Barilaro would have crafted this beautifully for 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). You can listen to his music and follow him for more beautiful music like this above!
