Petrina’s new live project is a solo set in which she passes from keyboards (piano and synthesizers) to electric guitar without interruption, creating a continuous connection between her original songs, in English and Italian.
She likes to start with a guitar version of Roses of the Day, a song that she has originally written for prepared piano and voice after a piece by John Cage.
Its score has been published by Peters with my name and Cage’s as co-composers.
During the isolation time, she has been invited by the Centro d’Arte of Padua University, one of the most important Italian series of new music since 1945 (jazz, contemporary, improvised music), to video-record herself while performing at home.
She has decided to put on a short set (less than half an hour) with some brand new songs.
She has included a piece composed during the quarantine days, titled Barbastrillo (bat in English), a sort of exorcism-song to ward off the pandemic curse.
