Franco Califano: the new rediscovered “Serenade in Rome” is released

The next March 30th, on the occasion of the eleventh anniversary of Franco Califano's death, Azzurra Music will release the single “Serenata a Roma” on 45 rpm vinyl and on digital platforms. The song, written by Califano together with Alberto Zeppieri and composed by Frank del Giudice, is an unreleased song which – as described on the website – was recovered from an old audio cassette from the early 1980s, kept by Del Giudice, through artificial intelligence.

The song, entirely performed by the singer-songwriter and extrapolated from an “audition” recorded at home, sees the light thanks to the application of artificial intelligence, with which it was possible to reconstruct the missing text phrases around Califano's voice. Through the instructions dictated by the score, and by the example of the existing voice and notes, the parts that had not yet been written and the singer were reconstructed.

As reported, the work process was suggested by the result of “Now and then”, what has been called “the last unreleased song” by the Beatles, published last November 2nd.

“Serenade in Rome”, of which you can listen to a preview in the video below, anticipates by a few months the release of volume 2 of the project “Sarò Franco, unpublished songs by Califano”.
