about

An urgency, an intimate explosion. The new single by Laura Masotto was inspired by the recent climatic situation giving voice to one of the most direct, essential truths: Our House is on Fire.

The electronic sounds, which are direct effects of the distorted violin, surround the sonorities of the instrument, they merge, as an opposite output deriving from the same source. An overwhelming duality that touches the human being in his intimate essence.
The track evolves trough two opposing forces that seem to fight: the violin grows, explodes, as in a form of resistance, and it contrasts the electronic dissonances, arising from the instrument itself: it is a vertical ascent, which follows the delicate sense of balance that is formed between all things, in harmony.

‘This track came as a sort of epiphany. I have been very inspired by the incredible strength of Greta Thunberg and the power of her resistance. I see in this young woman the realisation of a solid resistance, the blossoming of a new hope. But despite the deeply moving feelings this new movement’s triggered in me, I couldn’t separate the fact that this is happening because we are already living in dark, critical times. It is already happening. This created a sort of duality in my mind, in which both light and dark are fighting each other, in a sort of perpetual motion. I wanted it out, as a statement on its own.’ - Laura Masotto
