This is one of eight acoustic postcards blending music, sounds of place and people, and images to immerse you for a moment in the world of white truffles and Alba.
Filippo Cosentino found inspiration in his homeland for each song, drawing from his experience as a musician, composer, and producer. His sounds evoke the spirit of the subject of each postcard and demonstrate his unique talent in venturing with music to different areas, in some ways like a truffle dog, looking for the treasure.
Photos by Bruno Murialdo stir dreaming. Much is said in his images about the lands and people of the Piedmont. They provoke contemplation. Each postcard has music that speaks to that postcard’s subject. A phrase from the book, The Treasures of Alba (to be published by Pegasus Books) completes the experience.
The majesty of a meal with white truffles is captured in the baroque feel to the structure and sounds of the music. The soprano line is haunting, luring you to indulge in the temptations of the truffle, the voice appearing and dissolving as tastes of the truffle do, the vocalise lingers, too, as do the memories of that dish with truffles.
