Ten years of music in two hours: a double live album with an unreleased studio track ‘My Silent Sea’ and a remake of ‘Los Endos’ by Genesis for the young Italian prog-rock band, acclaimed worldwide
Vivo: the first live album of Barock Project!
15 tracks – 123 minutes
“We strongly believe in the energy that comes from the audience during our concerts: it’s a magical feedback which allows us to give our very best. Vivo has multiple meanings: we wish to give back to the listener the energy that the band produces on stage; furthermore, we want to celebrate our first decade of activity, ten years since recording our very first album; finally, Vivo is a milestone for our new line up and the new musical direction we are taking”. Rarely a live album has so much importance in the history of a band, but in the case of Barock Project Vivo is really a prime chapter: a double live album entirely recorded during the 2015 tour, that summarizes a decade of songs and sketches a future musical scenario, as proven by the new studio track My Silent Sea.
Vivo’s tracklist perfectly reflects the composing growth and evolution of Barock and also offers the dynamic impact of the band playing live: “In studio we are always very methodical, so when we play the new material live, at first we tend to play the songs as we recorded them, only after some time we start to transform them and this allows us to get motivated and have fun playing. Our arrangements are very rich and we do our best to propose them on stage in a more direct way to ensure a different impact, more suitable to the concert mood“. While a remake of Los Endos by Genesis closes the first disc, the second ends with My Silent Sea, an unreleased studio track connected to Skyline, as Zabbini declares: “I felt I had to close the Skyline chapter because Barock is living a turning point and wish to communicate differently, so I recalled the dreamy and narrative atmospheres of Skyline to give an epilogue to the story of this man on the raft. Our lyricist Antonio De Sarno gave proper meaning to the music I had written. Infact this track could easily be called “Skyline Epilogue”.
