Dear Viagogo and Secondary
Market Ticket Sellers,
We organised the concert in Naples on May 19th as a charity event.
We are donating all profits towards planting trees on Mount Olivella, Sapri.
We ask you to stop reselling tickets on your website for financial profit.
All profits for this event are intended to go to nature.
Dear Ticket Buyer, This concert is sold out. Please do not buy over-priced tickets from viagogo. There will be another Damien Rice concert in Naples another time. Damien Rice & Escif
Damien Rice is joining Spanish street artist, Escif, to mark the opening of “Breath Project” on May 19th at Teatro Acacia. Tickets to “Breath Project” go on sale Wednesday, February 15th at 11:00am CET [link:www.breathproject.it].
Damien Rice will be performing for the first time in Napoli for a concert focused on uniting people together to mark the opening of Escif's project to create a living battery on the side of a barren mountain, Mount Olivella. Ticket sales from the concert, as well as a crowdfunding will directly go towards the financial development of “Breath Project.”
"Breath Project” is striving to revive Mount Olivella, a 1000 mt. high mountain that suffered partial deforestation with side effects causing flooding in the surrounding areas. The installation will include the planting of 5,000 trees on the mountain. Escif’s vision is creating a huge organic drawing of a battery, symbolizing the renewing and regenerating of itself. From sea to surrounding towns, the visibility of the project will show seasonal cycles expressed through the changing colors and the presence or absence of leaves. It is a reminder to all that nature, just as phone batteries, needs recharging in order to function properly.
Damien and Escif have collaborated in the past to create the drawings used in the cover and booklet of Damien’s latest album, "My Favourite Faded Fantasy.”read more »
This past October, Damien took part in Michelberger Music, a special event where those invited participate in an independent, artist–driven, commercial–free collaborative musical gathering at the Michelberger Hotel and Funkhaus in Berlin.
Everyone only saw a fraction of what was happening simultaneously at Michelberger Music.
Thanks to a team of camera & recording people, some moment have been captured to share with others. See below for videos featuring Damien:
Back To Her Man (Homage to Leonard Cohen):
"It Takes A Lot To Know A Man" (A Capella Rehearsal with Cantus Domus Choir)
Folk Circle (ft. Erlend Øye, Sam Amidon, Damien Rice, Justin Vernon, O, Ragnar Kjartansson)
Collaboration with Dancers (Ft. Moira Cappilli & Jessica Dessner / Damien Rice, This is the Kit, Rozi Plain, Mina Tindle, Olivier Marguerit, Emma Broughton)
Head over to People Radio (link: Peoplerad.io), a direct link to the music of the fall week and all the music to come out of what has been started. It's a constant stream of music by all the artists involved in at Michelberger Music from the rehearsal, the jam sessions, and the shows... no skipping, like an eternal sound carpet.
