GB MUSIC

GB Music is the historic label of the author and producer Giancarlo Bigazzi, who died in 2012, for over 50 years on the Italian music scene.
Giancarlo was a versatile producer for many skills: direct, selective in the choice of words included in the melodies he composed as well as by other authors with whom he collaborated; incorruptible mentor and talent scout who often valued the skills of young singers, in many cases up to their success.

Available to listen with a sensitive musical ear and a capacity for synthesis and the intuition to find the words sometimes biting good (like "Vaffanculo" for the song by Marco Masini or "Pensa" in the case of Fabrizio Moro) his interventions gave often the turning point to a piece of any artist with whom he collaborated.
Among the prerogatives of Giancarlo there was certainly the curiosity and the reflection on social events, as in the case of the song "Gli altri siamo noi" that already in the early 90's referred to the phenomenon of immigration, a piece more than ever topical.
his love for music made him a "master of feeling" and a poet of feeling, building around him a real dialogue made of sensations and desires, which resulted in the composition of a melody or a text, those musicians who have could live and feel his talent and his sensitivity.
 
The figure of Giancarlo Bigazzi is a guide who travels through time.
Today the road taken by Giancarlo is carried on by his son Giovanni, record producer and coordinator of visual content, by his wife Gianna president, and by the artistic director Roberto Smeraldi, producer and collaborator of Maestro Toto Torquati for over 20 years.
With the management of Roberto and Giovanni GB Music uses a staff of young collaborators, in various sectors from the technical work of an arrangement to the profile of the communication of images and text through the use of social networks.

Today, more than ever, GB Music intends to enhance Giancarlo's repertoire in 40 years of career, also through events where the performance of his songs and the value of memory are not just a tribute. The intent of GB Music is to enhance the musical work of Maestro Bigazzi through artistic research, making Giancarlo's music a renewable energy beyond the ages, as a land that is always fertile and "timeless" to discover new talents and ideas to work on to produce new songs or soundtracks.
GB Music continues this work with the aim of creating notoriety and to sell what is produced we need attention to commercial and media criteria, decidedly changed compared to when the sale of records was the first sales vehicle. Fortunately, the size of live shows always has its importance, today more than ever, even for an economic return.

Today there are different sales channels, but the means and criteria for working on an artist or in songs have not changed, where it is believed to undertake a challenge, not easy but fascinating.

"Time would be just a boring sequence of production deadlines and dates to pay bills if there were no music to decorate it"
Frank Zappa

Even before a job, music is first of all passion, a form of art that has the means to give a message or in any case to create involvement in the listeners.
GB looks at content, at young artists who have ideas to propose and who are willing to question themselves, where the work moves with attention to the Search for sounds and words, trying to enhance talent without upsetting the artistic personality.
GB Music, in addition to carrying out official record projects, today has a "New authors" section.
The Giovanni Bigazzi record company and the artistic director Roberto Smeraldi organize auditions for authors and composers, with the aim of searching for new ideas or songwriters and possibly undertaking work on the contents.
In any collaboration, the motivation to question oneself is fundamental, to work on a piece by doing and undoing to find the most convincing solution, in the various phases of work: listening, the structure of the piece chosen for the sounds, for the arrangement and the singing in parallel interpretation.
For GB Music, the dimension of the "home-made studio" is fundamental to give the first impression to the song, to create the audition with the possibility of managing time without conditionings, working in absolute freedom. If the product convinces and there is a project, then we move on to the final stages of mixing and mastering, making use of external studies.
