| It is impossible
to say what would have happened to Christian
Cappelluti if death had not taken him away from us at such
a young age. Perhaps he would have been able to achieve the success in
the music world to which he seemed to be destined so clearly. Perhaps
he would have followed the fate of so many talented artists, held in great
esteem by the experts and largely unknown to the public at large. The
only thing that a critic can do is analyze as objectively as possible
what Christian has left us, a series of songs that bear witness to a constant
growth, from his very promising attempts to his last and more mature recordings.
Christian's writing, as confirmed by him, was not confined to the melody,
the text and a simple harmony. Rather, it provided for a true arrangement,
with specific parts for each instrument. "(…) when I least expect
it, the verse or refrain of a song that I have never heard appears in
my mind. The part of the song that comes to me through my inspiration
is always completely arranged and has vocals. Usually, it's not that difficult
for me to develop a whole song from that fragment". The increasingly
widespread use of technology, what is defined as home recording, is a
method that over the past few years has contributed to changing the "sound"
of pop music. Christian had already experimented with it, but it seemed
rather aimed at providing arrangement indications to the musicians he
wanted to involve in his projects.
