Ludovico Einaudi

In a Time Lapse

«When you become conscious that your time has a limit, it’s the moment when you try to fill that empty space with all your energy and you start to live every instant of your life fully, just like when you were a child».

That’s how Ludovico Einaudi presents In a Time Lapse three years after Nightbook: «a timeframe that doesn’t freeze the moment, but, on the contrary, encompasses our experiences, our past, present, and future, our expectations, our desires, our limits, everything that makes us, us».

In a Time Lapse is composed of fourteen tracks, with instruments ranging from piano to strings, to drums and electronic and, just like the artist’s previous works, is developed like a suite, with a musical structure referring to the one of a novel divided into chapters.

Epic and enthralling like Divenire, experimental and adventurous like NightbookIn a Time Lapse pushes itself even further, exploring new sound textures and arrangements that meld together different musical worlds into a stratified language, coherent and precise.
