Aurora

Aurora Aksnes (born 15 June 1996), known as Aurora, is a Norwegian singer, songwriter, and record producer. Her first single “Running with the Wolves” was released in 2015 wich obteined a big acceptered in the American press.

AURORA, the 22-year-old raised among the fjords and mountains of Bergen in Norway, who balances her sense of singularity with the deep bond she has with a fan base stretching from Berlin to Brazil, who have supported her with 200 million streams and counting.

Released in 2016, AURORA’s debut album All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend” positioned her as an artist unafraid to draw on the supernatural (think hunter’s moons, frozen rivers and wolves), while also mastering epic alt-pop. With her second record, Infections of a Different Kind -surprise-released to widespread plaudits in 2018 -she increased the breadth of her sound, via the choral crescendos.

Now, she’s poised to release her third opus: A Different Kind Of Human. It’s a collection that’s as astounding as her past releases, yet more experimental still, focusing in on ecological crisis, the consequences of rampant individualism, and AURORA’s hope that listeners will take its lyrics as “more than just words, but something [to] bring them into action into the world that we live in now”.

LUDOVICO EINAUDI

Pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi was born in Turin on November 23rd 1955. Perhaps it was his mother, an amateur pianist, who gave him the first impulse to music, planting the seeds for what would become a fruitful, illustrious career. He began to study music at the Conservatory of Turin and graduated with a diploma in composition under Azio Corghi at the Conservatory of Milan.

He spent the next several years composing for ballet, films and theater. But it was with “Le Onde” (1996), his first solo album, inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel, that he captured piano world’s attention.

The increasing prestige of his soundtracks would be confirmed by “Not of This World” (2000), “Light of My Eyes” (2001), “Strange Crime” (2004), “This is England”, film (2004) and TV series (2010), “The Untouchables” (2011), “Samba” (2014), “The water diviner” (2015) and “The third murder” (2017).

Seven Days Walking is the title of the new album by Ludovico Einaudi, released on March 2019, three and a half years after Elements and a triumphal world tour. Seven Days Walking is divided into seven episodes, seven albums (Day One, Day Two, etc. until Day Seven).

“I remember that in January 2018 I often went for long walks in the mountains, always following more or less the same trail. It snowed heavily, and my thoughts roamed free inside the storm, where all shapes, stripped bare by the cold, lost their contours and colors. Perhaps that feeling of extreme essence was the origin of this album.”
