"Alessio Ferrari has let himself wander further into the wild cosmos of German progressives, French soundtrack psych, and Middle Eastern raw '70s rock." ~Raven Sings The Blues. Upupayama is the musical persona of Alessio Ferrari, an Italian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who lives in a small mountain village above the city of Parma. Upupayama's music is rooted strongly in Eastern and Western folk traditions, an approach that Ferrari blends with his own modern sensibilities and style. In addition to playing guitar, bass, keyboards, and drums, Ferrari himself also incorporates a number of other instruments into his sound, including sitar, erhu, flute, and a variety of percussion instruments. For Ferrari, Upupayama's 2020 debut was all about the journey. The album served a series of musical vignettes that visited and weaved its way through a succession magical settings. 'The Golden Pond,' conversely, is all about location. Inspired by his frequent visits to a small lake near his mountain home, Ferrari intentionally focused on the details of the place he inhabited, a practice he decided would translate well with his approach to writing music. This is something Ferrari feels is best exemplified with the album's opening companion pieces, 'Cuckoos From The House Of Golden Tin' and 'Entering The Time Of Wilderness.' 'The Golden Pond' also continues Ferrari's practice of using "invented language" in his lyrics. Ferrari wants his voice to be heard as if it were an additional instrument, a tool that does not convey specific messages. His goal is to allow the listener to assign personal meaning to the music. He says, "I want my incorporating invented language is a way of breaking down the barriers that are sometimes created by language, by having to define something at all costs. Ferrari adds, "I think one of my unconscious dreams is not to have to define anything, but just to be carried away by our feelings."
