**Edition of 200, yellow vinyl, 180 gr. heavyweight LP + extensive booklet** I Should Have Been a Gardener is the last solo Alessandra Novaga’s album. The main inspiration is Derek Jarman, his diaries, his garden, his life: it is a portrait of the man, inspired by the life, the death, the political commitment, and the garden, a fresco composed of the music that Jarman loved and listened to. Sound and silence work together, music seeks redemption and purification in a living and sick atmosphere at the same time, like his garden at Prospect Cottage, a magical place, where colorful flowers that bloom between the stones, and crosses built by rusty irons left on the beach by the sea, coexist between the sea and a nuclear power plant.
