    Jewel Box CD - Debut album of The Spiritual Bat as duo, when the name turned from plural to singular.

    Artwork vision by Dario Passamonti, realized by Belinda Boni, Rosetta Garri, Stefano Trento

    Dario Passamonti is member of the Alchemist Painters group (Biennial of Venice 1986, Art and Alchemy Section, curated by Arturo Schwartz and several other international art exhibitions). He co-founded Spiritual BatS in 1992, with Matteo Bracaglia, out of the need to transmute image into sound. Author of the original music in both incarnations, with plural and singular names.

    Through The Shadows is Rosetta's debut as a singer. She was previously involved with The Spiritual Bats (plural) as drummer (Sacrament CD). She later on started programming drums, envisioning such arrangements (a limited edition instrumental-only Demo Through The Shadows was circulated with programmed drums) that she felt would be best played by a "real" drummer. When a studio session was arranged for drummer Alessio Santoni (Ufip-Facus) to record all tracks except for Sogno Tribale, she felt she needed another role if she wanted to still perform with the band. So she decided to write down lyrics and try and record vocals for the album. She managed in the short time given to record vocals on 6 out of 12 tracks: Through The Shadows, Silver Lakes, Waltz, Wish Power, Newdance, Sogno Tribale. In The Golden Cage was re-released later on as vocal mix in the compilation Lunar Sea, by Shinto Records.

    This album features very special guest Maestro Bruno Paolo Lombardi on Flute. Lombardi is a top classical musician, who has worked with Ennio Morricone, Luciano Pavarotti, La Scala, just to mention a few, as well as several most renowned symphonic orchestra conductors.

about

Through The Shadows is my debut as a singer. I was previously involved with The Spiritual Bats (plural) as drummer (Sacrament CD). I I later on started programming drums, envisioning such arrangements (a limited edition instrumental-only Demo Through The Shadows was circulated with programmed drums) that I felt would be best played by a "real" drummer. When a studio session was arranged for drummer Alessio Santoni (Ufip-Facus) to record all tracks except for Sogno Tribale, I realized I needed another role if I wanted to still perform with the band. So she decided to write down lyrics and try and record vocals for the album. Dario's approval was not immediate, but I managed in the short time given to record vocals on 6 out of 12 tracks: Through The Shadows, Silver Lakes, Waltz, Wish Power, Newdance, Sogno Tribale. In The Golden Cage was re-released later on as vocal mix in the compilation Lunar Sea, by Shinto Records.

The track Twins was born in New York, while breathing the atmosphere of September 11th, 2001 and following days. I had written some lyrics, "Breathing Ashes", but it was too much to say. Better leave it instrumental.

For those who may not know, Dario Passamonti is member of the Alchemist Painters group (Pittori Alchimisti, founded by Lamberto Bracaglia - Biennial of Venice 1986, Art and Alchemy Section, curated by Arturo Schwartz and several other international art exhibitions).

He co-founded Spiritual BatS in 1992, with Matteo Bracaglia, out of the need to transmute image into sound. Dario is the author of the original music in both incarnations, with plural and singular names.

This album features very special guest Maestro Bruno Paolo Lombardi on Flute. Lombardi is a top classical musician, who has worked with Ennio Morricone, Luciano Pavarotti, La Scala, just to mention a few, as well as several most renowned symphonic orchestra conductors.

about

The Spiritual Bat Italy

Initially meaning to release instrumental music, when a recording session for acoustic drums was set up, Rosetta, who had previously been the drummer, on a spur of the moment wrote and recorded the lyrics and vocals for Through The Shadows. The Spiritual Bat is an evolution from "The Spiritual Bats" project which was conceived in 1992... read more on Facebook, Reverbnation, Myspace ... more
