みなさま久しぶりです。

楽曲制作に追われてると全く文字を書くモードに入りづらく、気づけば僕の悪い癖で数ヶ月

放置プレイ状態になっていました。。。

まずはイタリアのフィレンチェで毎年開催されるファッションの祭典 「PITTI」のオープニングショー

の音楽を全面監修をしてきました。

GOLDEN GOOSE DELUX BRANDというブランドのCEOアレッサンドロからのラブコールによって

オファーを受けて、実現したプロジェクト。

1月8日からイタリア入りし、1月10日の本番に向けて到着同日にリハ。

イタリアの旅で一番美味かったお店はここでです。

ベネチアの名店でアレッサンドロ家族と最後の食事。

だが、この時ぼくは40度近い熱が出ていた。

18日までフィレンチェで制作をしてたのですが、今年最初のインフルにかかり、

最後の3日は死ぬかと思う体験をした。おかゆと梅干しが食いたくて、涙したことは一生忘れない。
