Lady Blunt is celebrating its first year of life by announcing a very special release dedicated to the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterraneo collection is a charity compilation of original music composed by various international artists, an opus that encompasses a broad spectrum of neo-classical music. From solo piano to strings, passing through electronics, ondes martenot, kalimba and experimental guitar, Mediterraneo represents a journey into music, a voyage on the waves of a layered and enveloping musical palette.
The Italian label has commissioned 15 artists with the intention of giving life to a choral work capable of launching a message of unity, inspired by and dedicated to the sea, using music as a means of connection, an instrument of cultural emancipation capable of transforming and improving ourselves. The musicians have composed pieces that are rich in emotional depth, with evocative, melancholy tones, sometimes dramatic, sometimes positively heartening. It is a genuine auditory immersion in the depths of contemporary instrumental music.
The collection offers a message of hope, expressed in the universal language of music, that reveals human sensitivity and empathy, the – sometimes dormant – need to be moved, to get closer. The sea itself is a metaphor for this, the middle-earth sea that is a catalyst of culture and diversity, that can unite rather than divide, nourishing the richness of that which is different or distant. With music, Lady Blunt wants to crown the beauty of the sea felt as a means of approaching and recognizing each other: Mediterraneo is a tribute to a sea that suffers, that is now the scene of profound human and ecological drama.
For this reason, all proceeds from the project will be donated to two Italian NGOs involved in the Mediterranean Sea, both on the environmental side (MareVivo Onlus) and the humanitarian side (Mediterranea, Saving Humans).
