What kind of music would you listen to in the last night before the End of the World?
This album seems to have a caustic, naive urge to reply to this question. And it does it in a certainly odd, chromatic, whimsical way.
Acclaimed and chosen as Staff's Pick from Bandcamp team, it's been described as a "classy jamboree of colorful soundscapes that'll really get your juices moving. [...] The album cover could fool you, but certainly does not distract from the maniacal awesome that pervades this release. Fairly minimal cost for a fantastic listen", says Moosik magazine.
"One can imagine a back and forth between silent film characters, or a stunning landscape put on in a Pixar film. [...] "Quick Party Before the End of the World" is a wonderful and expansive soundtrack piece", writes Michael Rickert on "The Examiner"
"Italian composer and sound designer Francesco D'Andrea hosts a party in your ears.", says Michael Beaver from Bandcamp, as he puts the album in the Staff Pick!
Francesco D'Andrea's music is influenced by a wide palette of sounds and artists, such as Pearl Jam, John Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Danny Elfman, Grant Kirkhope to name only a few. His musical background draws from very different musical places: from symphonic to jazz, rock, blues, eastern traditional music and much more.
And all of this can be found in "Quick Party Before the End of the World", a conscious yet visceral and instictive mix up of music cultures that get tied together by jazzy and bluesy progressions.
Francesco D'Andrea is an Italian composer and guitarist. He writes soundtracks for cinema, television, video games and other media. Studied at Saint Louis Music College in Rome, and since then, his music has been published and sold in more than 50 countries through USA, Europe, Asia, Australia and Canada.
His recording place is filled up with any sort of instruments, empty cups of coffee, Charles Bukowski's entire bibliography, and a lot of dreams.
