Welcome to BuzzMusic Bruce Sudano, and congratulations on your new single, "Ode To a Nightengale." What led you to create this reflective and soothing piece? It was an odd combination of things that led to its birth. The end of the Trump administration, the poetry of Pier Paolo Pasolini, and late nights in my studio staring out the window into the darkness listening to the night birds sing. How does the single "Ode To a Nightingale" represent you? How can new listeners get to know you better through this piece? It represents me in a few ways. First of all, there’s an emphasis on poetry and storytelling. It possesses subtlety but the message is urgent. It has this underlying rhythm that just carries you, and sonically it’s mature while at the same time modern. It has warmth with an edge. These are the kind of elements I like to incorporate into my music.
Who helped you create those neat visual effects for the "Ode To a Nightingale" music video?" Why did you want to give the video this unique modern edge? The video was directed by Italian visual artist Furio Ganz with added digital effects by Claudio Bellini. Whenever I do a video, I try to find creative people who see the song from a different perspective while at the same time enlarging its inherent feeling and meaning. Because of the contemporary message of the song, I felt it warranted imagery that was of the moment as well. What visual experience did you want to offer viewers with the music video for "Ode To a Nightingale?" What was your goal? The goal was to engage the viewer with a performance piece shaded by diverse colors and enhanced by the most curious digital imagery. The magic then happens in the balancing of those elements so that the song itself is what gets amplified. What's next for you? Right now I’m in a moment of assessing what is next. I’ve just come off a six-week tour which was a lot of fun but intense. So I need to let the dust settle for a minute, and I’m sure before too long, my imagination will kick back in. I expect it will be more songwriting, recording, and playing live shows, mixed in with a healthy dose of family time, but then again, you never know.
