In A Time Lapse was composed over a period of two years and recorded in October 2012 in a monastery near Verona.
The 14 pieces that compose the album range between piano, strings, percussions and electronics. As for the previous albums, In A Time Lapse develops as a suite with a concept that recalls the form of a novel divided in different chapters.
Epic and emotional as Divenire, experimental and adventurous as Nightbook, In A Time Lapse moves even further exploring new textures and arrangements that blends different musical worlds in one. Within the classical style of Ludovico, in this album you can hear echoes of baroque and italian folk music, late romantic strings textures, and a wide variety of colours between percussions and electronics, appearing throughout a journey that transport the listener through a deep reflection on the idea of time, with the words of Ludovico ‘when you get conscious that our time is limited, its the moment where you try to fill that space with all your energy and emotions and start to imagine beyond the limits and live every moment of your life fully as when you were a child’
The album features Ludovico’s band, the string orchestra I Virtuosi Italiani and violinist Daniel Hope that appears in four pieces : Life and Experience toghether with I Virtuosi Italiani, Underwood, a touching duet with Ludovico, and Orbits where the solo violin climbs the sky towards infinity.
