This inspiration for this piece is the relationship between two phases of life: youth and old age. The situations are related by a motif of three notes, sometimes given to the strings, sometimes to the woodwinds and guitar. Initially, the motif is represented by a sharp key (E major) and a carefree and steady rhythm. Old age is represented by a contrasting flat key (F major), where the theme becomes shaky by a change of rhythm. The two keys, representing the different stages of life, are connected by a modulation where a common chord joins them, as if joining the hands of the children and the elderly.
"Non Temperato" is a joining of the electric guitar and a classical orchestral ensemble. It is a hybrid of European-derived harmonies and the distorted sound of American rock music. It is a blend of elements explored in a unique and systematic way. Sound, composition, and imagination create a world of colors for getting lost in the listening. Daniele Gottardo
