Effects of a Chinese flower tea thinking about one of the greatest pioneers of the American Minimalism in music (what?). Then, a high-five to The Who (who?). This composition belongs to a cycle that will be uploaded on an irregular basis. The cycle is "Our Ancestors". In this cycle there are original compositions of Sara Zamboni and re-compositions (you can also call them reinterpretations, remixes, rearrangements, if you like). They will appear on the YouTube channel: 'Sara Zamboni Music'. See you there!

Sara Zamboni & Elena Lorenzi are ready to strike back!
It is time for Sara Zamboni & Elena Lorenzi to work together again. After months of planning and exchange of ideas, they are ready to embark in a very big thing: a new music theatre performance for voice and fixed media.
Part one is already there: do you remember "Dark Vocalise"?
We will restart working from that. I will compose two more pieces that explore in different angles the nuances of Elena's voice and expressivity, in a new sound and light design that will be more immersive and spectacular. Stay tuned for the coming months!

World premiere of
SPRING FESTIVAL 2019
The 52th edition of the Spring Festival in The Hague (NL) hosts the result of a six-months intense collaboration between Elena Lorenzi and Sara Zamboni. They know each other since long time and this work combines their love for details and their commitment to the musical act.
DARK VOCALISE is a composition for live voice and recorded voice modified and re-composed on a 5-channels fixed media. Elena Lorenzi is a versatile performer due to her strong lyrical background. She masters various vocal techniques, styles and is also sensitive to non-verbal forms of communication.
The staging of this work includes also precise instructions for light design, sound design and gestures. Movements have been developed in collaboration with the performer and notated on a score in a theatre script form.
A longer music theatre work is planned for 2020. Dark vocalise is one of the components of the programme.

is ready to kick
In our imagination determined by the homonym Romantic Ballet, Giselle is a young, beautiful and shy peasant girl who falls in love with a rich guy betrothed to a rich woman. Giselle is not very lucky in the original story so I decided to rewrite the libretto completely before composing my interpretation of this famous work. In my imagination she is just a woman who likes dancing, she meets some magic creatures that do just two things in their life: dance all night and kill their betrayers. One more detail: who said that Giselle is a perfect ballerina?
