The Darkest Strings is the first music I officially released, back in 2012.
Genre: Instrumental; Guitar-based Progressive Rock/Metal.
Composed on a serious note, during one of the most intriguing periods of my life.
The final track Yuki was revealed to me in a dream by my deceased childhood dog named Iucky.
One night, he appeared to me in a dream, in a white snow field, accompanied by a bluesy song, the foundations of the song Yuki.
Yuki is the Japanese word for snow.
It’s all over now
The Winter will come
(My thoughts are fading away…)
In the fog I see
The ghost of Iucky, of Iucky
One interesting thing is that before I composed this track, Iucky used to appear many times in my dreams, but after recording it, he’s never appeared again. So long, my friend, and thank you for this gift.
This album was originally released with 6 tracks (3 more than now). In 2022, I decided to remove then, because they were cluttering the essence of the album. If you want to listen to them, they are available in the archive.
