Luca Bash & Giova Pes - Bio
At the end of 2012, with Giovanni, I decided to start a not well defined project. I started writing new songs and working with Giovanni on the new arrangements. Until the next year this project remained with no name and without a certain track list. On the 17th of April 2013, in the middle of recording the first tracks, I had a bad crash on my motorbike. After 4 months of convalescence and home rest, I realized that I was lucky to be alive and healthy, but I was a fool, as an artist, because I composed a lot without “freezing” it with a good recording session. So I planned to record in the 2014 four EPs, to let my lines and notes be “printed” and available.
I called it CMYK for a simple reason: the people who work with graphics and computer design know very well that, when they have to print what they did, they have to convert the color profile, because printers work with four colors: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key Black.
Respectively, this project is a way to print my soul, my artist will and my feelings.
It is a 2 guitar and vocal project, not only by necessity, but also because I wanted it to be like a friendly listener’s invitation to play my songs next to him in his living room.
Moreover I decided to study guitar in 2001 after admiring Dave Matthews’s Live at Luter College, a marvelous live concert in acoustic duo.
Current music production rules discourage this kind of recordings. So, probably, it is a good idea.
The 5th EP is called “Single Drops” which represents a summary of the CMYK project, proposing one single, “Your Tomorrow”, and one song from each EP (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key Black).
