"Insalata Statica" (Silent Water, 2017), Giovanni Di Domenico's first solo album, allowed the Italian pianist based in Brussels to free himself from his abundant creativity by proposing six dense movements. It took him five years to record and produce this first record. With "Zuppa di pazienza", recorded and produced in five months, Di Domenico worked much faster, but the result is that these compositions are more thorough. Reduced to two, the movements are more refined, taking the time to develop around the main melody, which is repeated at leisure in a multitude of additional tracks, thus giving several faces of the same theme. Recorded using numerous analog keyboards at the Klangendum/Worm studio in Rotterdam, "Zuppa di pazienza" is entirely played by Di Domenico. The filed recordings and overdubs were recorded in a second time, without listening to the original base of the music. Di Domenico then edited the whole thing. The result is a tingling of sound material around the main theme. If "Zuppa di pazienza" is only Giovanni Di Domenico's second, he is no stranger. He is involved in many projects (Going, Eggstream, and many collaborations) and is a regular contributor to Jim O'Rourke with whom he has released "Arco" (Die Schachtel, 2015). "Zuppa di pazienza" is his third collaboration with three:four records after his participation in the Denki Udon trio (In "ZDB", three:four, 2015) and the Oba Loba sextet ("Sir Robert Williams", three:four, 2017).
