All tracks have been recorded, edited and mixed in the Dissòi Lògoi studio by Franco Parravicini and Alberto Morelli, in an erratic way and with very mediterranean timings, between 2000 and 2011

Authors who inspired us for the titles are Kurt Vonnegut – Madre Notte (original title: Mother Night), Gao Xingjian – La Montagna dell’Anima (original title: Lingshan), Shaun Tan-L’Approdo (original title: The Arrival), Massimo Bavastro – 25 apocalissi, S. Giovanni – Apocalisse, Omero – Odissea

Heartfelt thankyou to all friends and musicians who took part to this project. Thank you also to Emiliano “Cap. Elica”, Fabio “Magister” and Stefano “Tangatabrother” for their precious suggestions. Cover concept and design by Caterina Formenti. Logo by Antonio Bertolami. Graphic design by Alberto Bonanni. Thank you to Flami “wonderwoman” Formenti for her support in translation
