Margaret Stutt, working since 2008 under the name of Pezzettino, will be releasing her 10 inch EP, ‘Venus’, her 11th release under that name. From it comes the single, ‘From A Window, Big Sur’, is a dramatic piano and strings track, the instruments lightly framing her airy vocals, the finished product resonating in effect the sound of waves breaking on rocks, seagulls catching the air, and gentle breezes.
Margaret Stutt found her recording moniker from a children’s book of the same name, written and illustrated by Leo Lionni. The titular character of the book lives in a world where everyone is big, and does wonderful things; Pezzettino however is small; just a little piece (Pezzettino is “piece” in Italian). “I must be a piece of somebody. I must belong to somebody else.” Pezzettino discovers that he belongs to nobody but himself, and finds peace and joy in the realisation.
