Damien Rice - 10 Days To Barcelona

DUBLIN-BARCELONA 10 years ago, on 1st June 2008, Damien Rice embarked on a ’10 Days To Barcelona’ project. The idea was to drive from Dublin to Barcelona in his old Mini, with some friends, and write a new song each day on the journey. The songs, recordings & film footage of the project have lived on the shelf for the past 10 years. It has only recently been dusted off and prepared for a slow release, over the coming months, for the 10th Anniversary of that slow travel. Here are two versions of the first song “100 Miles Across The Room”. An acoustic version and a more produced version. Both are rough mixes and unmastered. More songs coming later… Stay tuned!

Casa Verdi by Eric Bachmann - 004

MILANO In 1896, the Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi founded Casa di Riposo per Musicisti: a home to host older musicians and opera singers, less lucky than him, people who had lived for Music and then found themselves penniless in their sunset years. Swiss photographer Eric Bachmann and German journalist Christian Kämmerling take us to inside this place.
