all compositions by Guido Mazzon
Different musicians, different places, different times: one mind about music. Playing like writing on a “tabula rasa” where I draw sounds, emotions, and closed relationships with my partners. Play music to live a common experience, to blow emotions not necessarily to say high concepts, anyway, to tell stories. I’ve always told the same story in my music, my own story. I only change the colours, the moods, the accents…
I think that to be free means make close connections between ideas and feelings: this is a reasonable evolution.
I love composing improvised music and improvising composed music – improvising is something you can’t improvise – the main thing is to evaluate the urgency of saying something as it is being said – the only difference between composition and improvisation is the sense of time. Sometimes I like to put more metaphysics in music, sometimes more music in metaphysics.
Each tune “as the crow flies”. (G.Mazzon )
