Corpo E Anima means Body And Soul in english, and is the first song from the album Per Quale Sentiero form the Italian band Seldon. Per Quale Sentiero translated is For Which Path.
Hari Seldon is a fictional character in Isaac Asimov’s Foundation series. In his capacity as mathematics professor at Streeling University on the planet Trantor, Seldon develops psychohistory, an algorithmic science that allows him to predict the future in probabilistic terms.
From these science-fiction scenarios the name of this Italian progressive rock formation takes its inspiration, back in 2008, when the Seldons were born. After a few years the album Tutto A Memoria cowas released, in which past and present come together, through the echoes of the best Italian progressive seasoning.
The expressive impact of the texts in Italian is perfectly linked to the British and American prog and hard prog colors, thus giving life to a definitely original and unmistakable musical formula. Pessimism mixed with a cynical but equally clear vision of the concerns of a society incapable of improving and recognizing its mistakes and horrors, this is the visual terrain in which the Seldons move, between sustained rhythms and atmospheres. It is possible to recognize inspiration from Van Der Graaf Generator and the melodies of Peter Hammill.
The quartet is now composed by Marco Baroncini (voice and keyboards), Marco Barsanti (drums), Carlo Bonamico (bass) and Francesco Bottai (guitars), while in the very first formation there were Cristiano Bottai on drums and Carlo Sciannameo on bass.
