Winter is coming slowly. The sorrow penetrates through the window of a house lit by a faint sun. The bells ring out far. A woman sings her dreams of escape, while a man turns around a square seeking for his desappeared love. The snow fall down insistently. Voices chant litany to celebrate the end of life. noises interfere with the rarefied melodies of a piano that tries to draw landscapes of purity. With the cold, innocence seems to have to die. Yet in a courtyard, the children resist winter by playing under the cold eyes of adults, and here and there, little birds survive in the snow.

MeDo's Little Trap is a project create in 2010 by the composer Domenico Mannelli (born in 1979). The idea was to create a container in which the italian musician could challenge himself in creating experimental pieces in complete freedom, combining electronic music, classical music, pop and rock. Thus in 2011 the Ep "Medicine Sound" that was released by La Bel in 2012. In 2013, the MeDo project was put on standby and Domenico focused mainly on writing a repertoire of italian classical songs. In 2014 he moved to Denmark (where he still lives) to work as a composer with the international theater company “Altamira Studio Teater”. Just from Scandinavia, MeDo's Little Trap resumed its activity, creating, in the cold winter 2017/2018, "Birds on the snow".

Written and produced by Domenico Mannelli
