“Canzoni in silenzio” is the history of an evening of one year ago. The 25th of April 2013, at La Sauna of Varano Borghi (Lakes’ Land), My Dear Killer and Bob Corn, two of the pioneers of DIY production and alternative song-writing in the Italian scene, shared the stage, or better, the floor, in a gig that was part of the itinerant, house show based festival entitled “Sottovoce: concerti fatti in casa”, , only playing guitar and singling, and going through material coming either from their previous records or novel, and some borrowed from other acts. Although the two projects started in the same period of time, they have grown to develop rather divergent and distinct styles over the years. The recordings of this gig appeared as an almost unique occasion to freeze on tape such a relaxed, laid down and close-to-secret event, to a few a more people and compare the different attitudes of the two acts.
“Canzoni in Silenzio” is the result of these recordings: a sort of continuous flow trough the entire evening, in between dark and more solar episodes, like the two faces of a coin, or a cassette tape, as in this case. Nothing more, nothing less.
