“FRENZY” by pianist and aerospace engineer Dr. Leonardo Barilaro is not just a piece of music but an evocative journey transcending traditional boundaries. Dr. Barilaro brings a unique blend of creativity and technical precision to this captivating composition.
The piano takes the lead here, and it does so with finesse. It begins softly, drawing you in with its gentle melodies. As the music unfolds, it undergoes a metamorphosis, transitioning into a more upbeat, vibrant pattern. This seamless shift in tempo and mood adds an element of unpredictability to the composition, keeping the listener engaged and intrigued.
What’s particularly fascinating is the way the music incorporates glitchy sound effects. These elements serve as a dynamic contrast to the elegance of the piano. They create a sense of dissonance and unease, heightening the emotional impact of the composition.
As the title suggests, the music’s journey reaches a pivotal point, capturing a sense of urgency and frenzy. The keys play with a sense of virtuosity, adding a layer of complexity to the piece. It’s a musical whirlwind that leaves you breathless.
The connection between this music and its role in the award-winning short film is evident. Directed by Valery Vallee, the film masterfully blends fantasy with horror, taking the audience on a rollercoaster of emotions. In the same way, “FRENZY” by Dr. Barilaro mirrors this narrative arc. The music evolves alongside the film’s themes, offering an auditory experience that complements the visual storytelling.
