April seems to come from the Latin word “aperire” or to open, to hatch. The month when buds and flowers open and spring shows all its splendor. The ideal moment for the release of the video of “Rebirth”, a song focused, indeed, on the theme of new life.
Exactly two months after the release of the single (positively received in particular by guitar, progressive-rock and progressive-metal enthusiasts), the video clip of “Rebirth” is released, a track by guitarist-composer Paolo Ballardini a.k.a. BALLARD.
It is the fourth video published preceded by “Changes”, “Too Soon feat. Derek Sherinian” and “Chant of Posidonia,” which are an excellent showcase of the artist’s ever-evolving guitar mastery, composing style and sound.
Once again he uses the image to give strength to his music and enhance its message.
The concept of rebirth is represented by a suggestive sequence of images divided mainly into two sections: the first focused on destruction and abandonment and the second in open and sunny spaces to ideally symbolize the arrival of a new beginning.
The music world of BALLARD is a must for listeners who love artists like Plini, Steve Vai, Dream Theater, Intervals, Joe Satriani, as well as the whole world of instrumental progressive rock/metal.
“It’s music inspired by a particular chapter in the life of all of us, when we finally get out of the dark, we glimpse a glow and find renewed inner energies that guide us towards a new season of the soul. I chose to accompany the release with the words of Pablo Neruda that I feel really representative.”
“BEING BORN IS NOT ENOUGH. IT IS TO BE REBORN THAT WE ARE BORN, EVERY DAY.” – Pablo Neruda.
