Elara is a post-rock band from Italy which has heavy ambient and modern classical influences. The band Luigi Cerbone (Guitar, electronics, sounds & programming) was the founder, he first released an EP called “Starry night in a cold November” by himself in 2008.
Soon he met Alessio Tozzini (Bass) and Vincenzo Barbone (Drums) and they have been playing as a band since 2011. Band members told that band was result of the changes in their musical styles and concept and moreover, soon after that, “it came a moment of breathing space, the quest of peace and serenity.
“These are the questions asked by the band:
“Is it possible, if only for a moment, to forget the frenzy of life?
Is it possible, at any time, anywhere you are, whatever you’re doing, to take your mind back to the most exciting places you’ve ever seen, from the horizons that you have touched, to the nature that surprised you, to the single beat of the Earth that has allowed you to understand that whatever obstacle you’re facing, somewhere there`s a lovely personal place where you can find peace and quiet?”
“We tried to give shape to this need of the soul, notes and melodies, crescendos and atmospheres, which allowed us to fix forever the memory of those places and those emotions, which allowed us to create our own “Soundtrack For a Quiet Place.”
The band decided to record a brand new 3 songs EP at the Domination Recording Studio based in the Republic of San Marino. Afterwards Greg Calbi, Senior Mastering Engineer at the Sterling Sound of New York, completed the mastering of the EP.
Elara is set to release their second EP “Soundtrack For a Quiet Place” with Fluttery Records in winter 2013. (Press)
