Damian Dalla Torre – Alles Neu Alles Neu
is a standout track from Happy Floating
, the upcoming debut album by Leipzig-based tenor saxophonist, composer and producer Damian Dalla Torre
on Munich imprint Squama Recordings
. The album was born from a deep process of Damian's self-reflection and search for identity during the pandemic. Alles Neu
, the track that the artist himself describes as a "a melancholic yet encouraging gaze into the future", feels like a painting – a perculiar sort of one, a calm seascape showing the ocean right before the storm, but with beautiful and almost cartoonish visuals (think Kenny Scharf or Kandinsky) painted on top. The composition is so rich with details, textures and sounds that it feels new no matter how many times you've heard it.
