Max Repetti: Pictures of Life

“Picture of life is a fresco of my life.
Each piece of music represents experiences, people, colours, desperation, hope, towns, and silences.
It is an itinerant novel travelling from New York to Paris,from Rio de Janeiro to Rome, and to my native countryside.
Distances that can be filled by the notes that change dissonances into consonances, haunt the silence and freeze a seemingly impossible equilibrium.
This is my life, and this is who I am.”
