Life is an odyssey. We all carry it literally within us, in our genes and souls, experiencing it throughout our lives. This odyssey starts in Seville, Spain in 1546 and takes us through England and Germany (16th century), Sweden and the Baltics (17th and 18th centuries), Paris (late 19th century) and New York (20th century) to a dreamscape in 2019. My search for sound has also been an odyssey that has led me to extensive research of the repertoire and the development of the 12-string Dodeka guitar. It is a unique instrument built by Ermanno Chiavi. My idea was to expand the range and the sound spectrum of the traditional guitar, enabling new arrangements and compositions. Just as Odysseus altered his appearance, these free arrangements alter the pieces' appearance but not their substance - the borderless odyssey of the soul.'
