all music by Claudio Parodi (SACEM)

Sound is my shelter is an ongoing series of recordings of solo improvisations, in which I will employ one by one all the instruments I can play. Who knows me personally knows that I’m continuously buying instruments, in order to find new tools to express my own music. To give you an example, on the same day of the editing and mastering of this CD, I bought a soprano saxophone. Likely, this series will never see an end. The only rule I will follow is to record when the kairos (ancient Greek for “the right moment”) has come, in terms of practising and reflecting.

Heavy Nichel is the complete recording of a performance in studio. Tracks were put in order to have a more comfortable listening; anyway, as there is no pause in between the tracks, continuous listening is possible.

A special thanks to Thomas Buckner, who suggested the title of this CD long time before it was even thought about.

In memory of Nadia Ongarato.
