ALESSANDRA CELLETTI for the Half Museums

Written by Alessandra on February 26th, 2012 Posted in Concerti

With conviction I support a political protest which is finally made with poetry and creativity: the initiative of the Half Museums. It ‘s a surreal and  strong fight to draw attention to the painful consequences caused by the short-sighted decision to halve the funds allocated to the Museums, Libraries and the Historical Archives of the Lazio Region.
So I will sit at the piano and play my own compositions, drawn in particular from my last record, Crazy Girl Blue, all cut in half . The notes will begin to flow, then, without warning and without giving time to understand, I’ll break off the sound;  it could happen right at that very moment, on a chord particularly effective, slicing in half the melody. I will do so with infinite regret because I love playing music from start to end, without any sudden interruptions, without unjust cuts … But I’ll stop the music to become part of this brilliant protest against the reduction by 50% of regional funds to the museums  , and to understand how cruel it is halving the art, whether it be poetry, color or music …
