Mario Chianello studied classical piano and organ and, from the mid eighties to the late nineties, he was quite busy recording and producing music in local studios, doing organ concerts and playing with local bands. In 1996 he co-founded Domino, a well-respected Genesis tribute band, and he's recording and performing with them to this day. In 2001 he began recording the songs that would eventually end up on 'Proxima' in his home studio. Listening to the album, we are carried through different musical landscapes, from new age atmospheres to classical piano tracks, from a bag pipe on the hills of Scotland to a pipe organ in Notre Dame and a few other things in between. All twelve tracks have strong melody lines and show Mario's gift for tricky signature and key changes that sound so smooth and natural that the ear is tickled but not disturbed. In a few words: 43 minutes of intense musical emotions.
