There is a man on the roof, he’s carrying an open umbrella even though it’s not raining anymore, just in case.
He’s looking at the sky trying to remember the girl wearing a kimono at that exhibition in the Netherlands, a green window, an explosion and the atomic snow.
He’s so caught up in his memories that he doesn’t notice the rainbow.
He looks at horizon lost in his own questions.
He doesn’t see the sky as it is but simply as a mirror.
What is he doing?
Why did he climb up there?
This album is a cool, white room.
I added some music to convince that man to come down from the roof. And you, you can add anything you’d like.
The room is waiting for you, there is one for each one of us.
– Cristiano Arcelli
