    A project by Matteo Baracco / designed between winter and summer 2018 in Turin, Italy.
    Published:
 RECORD AS AN ARCHIVE.
A HISTORICAL AND PERSONAL BAGGAGE THAT INFLUENCES
THE ARTIST AND HIS MUSIC TOO. A GREAT SONG HAS THE POWER
TO HOLD EMOTIONS AND TO PRESERVE THEM FOREVER.
THE PROJECT IS A PRAISE TO MUSIC AND TO THOSE ARTISTS WHO HAVE ALWAYS INSPIRED ME THROUGH THE TALE OF THEIR CONTEXT. 

ITA: Record come archivio.
Un bagaglio storico e personale che influenza l’artista e con esso la sua musica.
Una grande canzone ha il potere di racchiudere in sé le emozioni e di conservarle per sempre. 
Il progetto è un elogio alla musica e a quegli artisti che da sempre, attraverso il racconto del loro contesto,
guidano il mio percorso di vita.
