Living Stilts is a musical project conceived by the composer Luca Mavilia with the intention of creating evocative soundscapes and letting the listener’s imagination roam.
The project brings together artists, musicians and friends who share the same feelings and a love for the most visionary music. The compositions of Living Stilts are inspired by the fantastical, by the most imaginative art, by fiction and by poetry. The influences range from prog rock and hard rock to Classical music from the Romantic, Baroque and Renaissance periods.
Living Stilts’ creations don’t exhaust themselves over the course of the individual song but should be thought of as suites, and for this reason they favour the concept album form. Voices and instruments are chosen in relation to the colour to be given to the music, and so recited pieces, instrumentals and multiple male and female voices abound.
