DJ THOR and TONY CORIZIA Album "Odyssey (Ancient Beats and Myths)"

Published on 06/30/2020, 3:59 PM

The sound of Dj Thor meets that of bassist and international producer Tony Corizia in a new 18-track concept album titled "Odyssey (Ancient Beats & Myths)". The two well-known artists - who are not new to major musical projects together - this time, inspired by Homer's Odyssey, musically address the theme of travel.


Featuring Ian Anderson, Remo Anzovino, Jerusa Barros, Stefano Bollani, Cesaria Evora, Giusy Ferreri, Bruno Lauzi, Dorota Miskievcz, Gianni Morandi, Fabrice Quagliotti, Massino Ranieri.

During the long quarantine period, isolated in their own studios and connected to each other only through the internet, they have made together, note after note, this long album of an almost 80-minute lenght.

A current original and very visionary sound path where they explore different places, emotions and cultures through music, virtually as in Ulysses' journey, without moving physically but only in a musical sense that recreates those emotions and sensations. The themes of sea and nature strongly return throughout the album.

Refined electronic atmospheres, unique ethnic sounds typical of Anatolia along with instruments such as the duduk and forays into chill out music, afrohouse and progressive house with an inevitable touch of pop and jazz that turn some of the tracks into possible radio hits.

Virtually coming out from the Mediterranean Sea and sailing beyond the Pillars of Hercules to Capo Verde, whose music inspires part of this journey, as in the case of Gianni Morandi and Cesaria Evora, who duet together in a classic Cape Verdean, or Giusy Ferreri who sings Creole along with the sensual voice of Jerusa Barros in a brand new remixed track.

International taste in the arrangements and lots of Italian music revisited in a very modern and experimental key: the voice of Massimo Ranieri in an electronic tango with an r'n'b groove, the unmistakable voice of Bruno Lauzi in an electro swing version of "Onda su Onda".

High level chill out in "Daleko" with pianist and composer Stefano Bollani, the flute of the legendary Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull and Tinkara that intertwine in a classic house piece.

Some tracks are steeped in mystery, inspired by the oldest places in the eastern Mediterranean and with very modern arrangements, typical of the Burning Man Festival.

Another very interesting song on the album is "Stay", arranged and written by the two artists with the electronic disco dance guru Fabrice Quagliotti of the legendary french group Rockets.

On the album there are also several narrative voices (in English and Italian) from strong cinematic flavor, mention the ancient Homeric poem and a truly inspired poem of the early Twentieth Century.

The album ends with "Götterdämmerung" (or "The Twilight of the Gods"), a name inspired by Richard Wagner, the "trait d'union" between the Nordic mythology - from which the same Dj Thor has drawn inspiration for his name - and the very similar ancient Mediterranean myths (to which, instead, the Odyssey is inspired).

Several hidden and cultured quotes, many emotional musical visions for this long virtual journey, born during the long Spring 2020 quarantine.
