Fabio Zuffanti is working on a new Hostsonaten project based on famous poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 'The rime of the ancient mariner'.

Fabio Zuffanti conceives the idea to work on a musical version of the poem in 1995. The first two parts are in fact in the first two Hostsonaten albums ('Hostsonaten', 1996 and 'Mirrorgames', 1998) but the realization of these never fully satisfied the composer who decides to suspend the project.

In 2011, at the end of the successfull tetralogy 'Seasoncycle suite', Fabio decided to take up work on 'The rime ...' and bring it to a conclusion.

The project will be divided into two cds: The first, release in 2012, will feature the prologue and the first four parts of the poem, the second in 2013 with the remaining three parts and the epilog.
The two parts that have already published ‚€‹‚€‹will be completely re-recorded. The vocals of the first four parts will be assigned to four different singers who will try to explore, interpret and return to the listeners the emotions of the dark and dreamy Coleridge's poem.

The recordings will begin in November 2011 and the release of the first cd is scheduled for spring 2012. The musicians who will join Fabio will be Maurizio Di Tollo (drums), Luca Scherani (keyboards) and Matteo Nahum (guitars). In addition to these a long series of guests will embellish the sound with their instruments.

You can find all the updates on Zuffanti's Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/fabiozuffanti) and on Hostsonaten's one (http://www.facebook.com/hostsonaten).
