Tommaso Moretti SemoComeSemo Quartet
SemoComeSemo in Roman dialect means we are what we are.

The project’s idea takes shape from drummer and composer Tommaso Moretti’s need to confront his artistic inspirations. The musical result is a natural reflection of the musician’s life evolution. Decontextualized Italian folk elements find their own way to interact with the Chicago avant-garde context through a balanced formula of open improvisation and detailed composition. Sharp angles of complex rhythms are softened by open hearted melodies inspired by the the pastel colors of the Italian 60’s surrealism movie scene. Time illusions and nostalgic harmonies are used by the musicians as a tool to open a gate and connect with the poetry of that dreamy dimension and its goofy characters.
