The voice of Eleonora Bianchini and the double bass by Enzo Pietropaoli are back for fonè
The artistic adventure of DOS goes on, after the successful experience of the debut album that marked the beginning of an artistic bond between the voice of Eleonora Bianchini and the double bass played by Enzo Pietropaoli.
DOS presents IN SIGHT, an original glance at international pop songs (from Michael Jackson to Oasis), Italian classics (including Battiato, Battisti and Celentano) and previously unreleased songs, all connected in a journey along a gracefully homogeneous path. The voice of Eleonora Bianchini blends perfectly with the sonic taste of Enzo Pietropaoli, who is able to let his instrument “sing” in extraordinary ways. “Standard” recordings often tend to penalize the sound of double bass, whereas the recordings signed by fonè are able to emphasize the musicality of this instrument, making all upper harmonics perfectly audible, with a peculiar richness in timbre.
The recordings took place in a natural environment; in this case, our choice was the Auditorium Hall at the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera, a location particularly appreciated by Giulio Cesare Ricci. The Auditorium is located in the factory where the first Vespas used to be assembled in the early 1900s: nowadays, it stands out for its truly excellent acoustics.
DOS 2 – IN SIGHT is able to offer a special taste, giving a new flavor to all the songs included in the record, most of which are imprinted in the past of any of us.

Here are Eleonora Bianchini’s impressions regarding this new experience: “Recording with fonè is a hard yet exciting challenge. This recording method allows capturing both the magic and the frailty of the instrument, which in turn must be used with accuracy and precision. The “dialogue” between the double bass and the voice marks the record, and it somehow recalls the relationship that stands between the funambulist and the tightrope he walks on: the physical contact with the rope creates confidence, giving strength and control to the tightrope walker”. Enzo Pietropaoli added: “The second stage in the musical path of DOS brought us to a new place in which the third element of the band, namely acoustics, had changed. This gave us new emotions and different solicitations, especially in our relationship with sound. As per the previous experience, it has been a stimulating, constructive challenge, the umpteenth “photo” of an authentic moment never-to-be-repeated”
