Antonymes (Music) Mario Savioni (Lyrics and Vocals) — “Antonymes 301210 (for Piano Day 2018)”

Here is a new collaboration, this time with Antonymes, where I lay a bed of vocals that I wrote over his music. It is a delicate, maudlin rift that relates to my ex-wife, but is also just the words that came to me as I listened to him play. It brought tears to my eyes. I hope you enjoy it.


  1. Jeez, Mario, you definitely have a great voice for singing and for reciting poems. You would also be fantastic working on the radio. I like the whistling at the end of this piece. Bravo!

  2. So, you heard the whistling. Yea! Maybe that’s my carte Blanche: Radio. I can stay in the room with lots of food and spin records. That’s a great idea. I am never leaving my house again.

  3. Beautiful and relaxing and I love the whistling at the end. Your voice reminds me of the Big Band era of the 1940s and ’50s. Your voice is dreamy and deep and creates the tone of your poetry. 🙂

    • I am having to home school my children at the moment because of this isolation. Do you know what makes a grown woman cry? Listening to my daughter practicing ‘fur elise’, ‘ode to joy’ and many others on the piano every day. We are in the fifth week at the moment and I can’t wait till life goes back to normal. So Please keep making that style of music, it’s a wonderful change. 🙂

  4. I am so flattered I am apparently capable of such eloquence. I played today on my balcony, but never know the effect, simply because no one ever says anything. The building and surroundings remain quiet. Once I sang, and I could hear footsteps, the footsteps of a desperate person trying to locate some violator of the Homeowners’ Association rules. But, they stopped and took note, but never banged on my door to shut me up. I am fairly brief, say six minutes, then I stop. So, thank you for the positive feedback. May we all be rescued soon. I have a new collaborative song I am working on. Need a few more takes, but the permission is granted, and the graphic is done.
