about

Conversations was conceived in the cold months of winter and early spring in Denmark 2019

Setting out to pursue a different artistic path, this album is composed using small fragments from a conversation with my father - field recordings and improvisations on an Organette

I was talking with my father Richard J. Rizzi in his home upstate NY in the winter of 2017- and I wanted to record us hanging out in his kitchen - looking at his work and him telling stories.
The parts I decided to used for this album, were mainly on subjects of art, philosophy, spirituality and a little about the man I’m named after - Robert Cole - my fathers friend and a gifted musician and conductor, who was killed the year before my birth - the rest of that story, is another album…

The field recordings originates from my journeys to Venice, Italy - New York City and Upstate NY, USA - Oslo, Norway - Gothenburg, Sweden, Büdelsdorf, Germany - my back yard in Denmark and many other places.

The Organetta is sort of an electric melodica I picked up at a flea market. I haven’t found use for since I got it - until now!

Some of the field recordings as well as the Organette recordings have been altered by stretching, reversing and granulating.

No synthesizers were used
