The artist will bring live for the first time the new album , "Duality"

Dardust arrives March 11 at the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone with his Duality Tour 2023, with which he will showcase his two souls (solo piano and electronic music) in a unique multidimensional live experience, with visual effects that promise to be spectacular.The Roman concert will also be an opportunity to hear tracks from his new studio work, "Duality," live for the first time. While in previous albums Dardust has always tried to combine piano minimalism with electronics, creating a crossover between neoclassical and pop, in this work his two realms are split into two parallel yet converging experiences. "The passion I cultivate for the study of human psychology has helped me understand the dualism that has always been present in my musical expression," Dardust says. "In previous albums, the emotional world of the piano and the more cognitive world of electronics have always merged, creating new sonic perspectives and a crossover between neoclassical and pop with magical elements coming from soundtracks, a certain club world, fantasy movies, and romantic music. In this step I decided instead to work these two aspects as if they were worked on by my two hemispheres separately. Black and White, Electronic and Piano. The two extremes of my musical and artistic imagination as Dardust."

His music has accompanied internationally renowned events such as the Superbowl, the NBA All Star Game, the Apple Keynote and the Flag Handover in the Closing Ceremony of the Beijing 2022 Olympic Games, to name a few. An outstanding songwriter and producer, he has signed numerous big Italian hits, boasting a palmarés of more than 70 Platinum records and over 500 million streams.As a composer, he created the first Italian instrumental music project that crossed the Berlin - Reykjavík geographic/musical axis: a discografic trilogy ended with "S.A.D. Storm and Drugs" released on the international market in January 2020. In the past two years he has collaborated with international artists including Benny Benassi and Sophie and The Giants, who accompanied him on stage at the Pala Olimpico in Turin during his performance at the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
