Speech Melody Composition by Rob Cavallo
Published on: 2019-03-23 06:15:12
In the first 20 seconds I just imitated the politician speech notes. Half the video on, I arranged that melody in a way "listenable" as if listinening to a progressive rock composition. I'm typing way too many words, just hit play and see what I mean. Stricciappa

Rob Cavallo - Game of Thrones Metal (Trono di Spade Metal)

Like it? Well, I'd be honest with you. I don't like the show. (Yes, I'm one of those ones) I don't even dig the theme song, even though I totally understand the choice of the producers to pick such a piece of music for such a show. I know too many people that tried to convince me Game of Thrones is amazing, so I took the opening theme and made it likable to my own tastes. Maybe I'll give it another try :)

Rob Cavallo - Composition of a Djent Riff
Published on: 2018-11-28 02:26:33
I don't even know what djent really means, but this is somewhat a genre caused by the perils of the band Meshuggah. What I did here is taking a riff (18 notes long) and by twisting and turning it, I obtained several different riffs out of it. But never changed the rhythm of the riff itself. Strangely, each developed riff sounds different from one another.

Check it out.

Roberto Cavallo - Assolo di chitarra ad Umbria Jazz Festival 2018
Published on: 2018-11-23 07:07:31
Quest'estate ho avuto l'opportunitá di suonare la mia chitarra sul main stage di Umbria Jazz, jammando con i New Orleans Mystics e la mia band Heavy Wood. Un'esperienza unica. Contrariamente a quello che si pensa, suonare davanti ad un pubblico enorme é parecchio piú semplice che farlo davanti ad una ventina di persone. Non solo, l'adrenalina che una folla puó trasmetterti, ti fa raggiungere un livello zen, misto di estasi musicale e condivisione con gli altri membri sul palco.

Roberto Cavallo.
