Shadows is the sixth album by Andrea Carri, it was composed and recorded with the drummer Francesco Camminati and released with Memory Recordings
In the life of a musician there is always a private place where we search for our dimension and inspiration. In particular, we find out who we are when we have an instrospective atmosphere. You have to imagine a warm room where there are only a few lights and shadows all around. Here the artist finds out uncommon emotions and writes his music.
The album is about what we have discovered inside our Shadows.
Andrea & Francesco
We created a special Shadows page where you can watch the official videos and backstage videos. Have a look!
In October 2017 we initiated a photo contest to celebrate the new album by Andrea Carri and Franceso Camminati.

Chronos is the fourth studio album released by Andrea, the first with Psychonavigation Records.
The main theme of the album is Time, how we approach it, our relationship with past, how we live the present and
what we expect from the future. In particular starting from the concept that “Time flies”, is there something
that make us eternal? Music is the solution, suggested by this journey made by the notes of a piano.
Time flies away...
But what is time?
Which is our relationship to the past?
How do we live in the present?
What can we expect from the future?
Have we got a walk-on part in life?
Will something of us remain?
What about "the end"? Does it exist?
But something can make us eternal...
...after a harvest, another one comes.
This album was financed through a fundraising campaign at Music Raiser and has some guests: Carla Chiussi at Violin, Emanuele Milani at Cello, Roberto Porpora at electric guitar and sound effects, Francesco Mantovani at synth and pad, Perry Frank at lap steel, soundscapes and visions.

The Metamorfosi project
Cover by ColoRain
During a day in autumn 2012 worked Andrea out his plan to develop the Metamorphosis theme. He felt fascinated by the theme because it is in close contact with the constant and eternal becoming. He realized this project by entering completely different ways like he has done with his former projects (Partire and Stanze segrete), so he has applied for fundraising through the web at MusicRaiser. With this campaign he wanted to create a new album of piano music, inspired by the theme of metamorphosis, following great pianist as Kevin Kern, Yiruma, Ludovico Einaudi, Fabrizio Paterlini and Francesco Nigri.
He reached his target and used the budget to complete the recording (made by the same sound engineer who has already done his previous albums Partire and Stanze segrete), the mixing and the electronics effects, realized by Roberto Porpora, the mastering, the graphics, the printing, the promotions and the physical and digital distribution.
Themes treated are changes, love, hope (expecially hope for oppressed people, like the sahrawi one) and freedom. Andrea suggests to listen to the music on the headphones, in order to better appreciate all the new proven meanings.
The album provides important collaborations with photographers from all over the world, who gives images to my sounds, creating videoclip (one for each song) which will be published on youtube and here in an interesting union of arts. The first video was published on 29th April and week by week will the other videos follow!
Metamorfosi was the theme of the photo contest that we started in the summer of 2013.

Andrea dedicated this disc in memoriam to Vando Morini and Guglielmo Tedeschi, particularly the song "La nostra stagione".
...for the travelers (viaggiatori), for the weak-minded, for the one who never reaches a target but continues to try it, for the one who does not stuck with the outwardnesses but continues to ask "Where will we go" (Dove andremo)?"

The song is about people who leave... giving us new teachings which will allow our rebirth.

Aprile - Blog from Andrea
April is the month of rebirth, the month in which the nature begins to live again and shows us all how the wheel of life goes in its most beautiful round and restarts the cycle. April is the month in which one of my relatives has gone. It was a beautiful day, one of those days that you madly love at the countryside, a day where the birds in the branches were singing and generally all animals were showing us, how beautiful life is. So when I wrote "Aprile" I did not want to tell only about grief and pain, but also of rebirth, a kind of legacy of who left his own life and hands out the scepter to the one who is coming. Death and life. Hope, the grief and the future. Now one year has passed since that April, a year where many things have changed, where I had my first concert abroad and where my music began to be appreciated. Here is the hope. April is the month where the past leaves the scepter to the future, by handing out her teachings in a transit of commands and love. That's how I see the death of my grandmother. And I think that her teachings and her love revive every time that someone is listening to this song, becoming more alive than ever. That's the magic of music and of spring.
The theory of relativity (2016)
Andrea released the single on March 28 in 2016 - in occasion of the Piano Day. The Piano Day is created by the German pianist Nils Frahm - that day, the
88th day of the year, is meant to celebrate the piano.
You can buy the single here.
A Distant Ship (2019)
Andrea released this song on 28th March 2019 (Piano Day) with Mellotron. The song talks about what we have, what we will never have and what we would like
to have. In particular it focuses on our continuous, sometimes destructive feeling
to want something more and our impossibility to be completely satisfied
with any of our conditions. The allegorical image is represented by a ship
on the horizon that travels to distant places, of which we know nothing, but with
enviousness we are thinking about the adventures that it probably will experience.
You can get the song here or any other digital stores like Deezer, Spotify, iTunes.
