Would you ever consider the possibility of performing your pieces live in Hong Kong?

Yes, I do hope to come back to HK someday, as my family is there. Would love to work with the HK Phil!

Q

What inspirations did you have and what inspirations did you draw from to compose Sogno Di Volare?

A

Da Vinci himself! The quote that the lyrics are based on was about flight. That, coupled with the instructions from the developers to write something with the idea of exploration, and the music came pretty naturally.

Q

Hi!!!! I'm a huge fan of your work and i'm analysing Sogno Di Volare for my EE; is there anything you can comment on regarding the correlation sogno di volare has to the game as a theme and also how it relates to imagery of the game/the game itself?

Thanks! When I was first given the assignment, they told me that this Civ had a strong exploration element to it, and they sent me some rough art of the opening menu. So that's how I came up with the ostinato that you hear at the beginning. Then when I was thinking of lyrics, I wanted to include a little easter egg for longtime Civ fans, so I decided to use the tech-tree quote by Da Vinci you hear in Civ IV.

Q

Will you be coming to St Louis any time soon? I'd love to see you live!

There are no plans to at the moment. I don't tour unfortunately, and orchestra concerts are difficult to organize.

We've just secured the last of the recording session dates for February of 2020, so it should be done by June 2020 or so.
