Pianist Domenico De Clario made his name in quite an unusual way: "blind" concerts. He would set up a situation where he would be blindfolded and forced to play the piano for a very long period of time. Most of these shows took hours, and he never had any sort of musical prompting or rehearsals before his performances. The legend of his concerts grew, until finally an executive heard about the pianist and checked it out for himself. Convinced that De Clario would make a unique addition to any record label, he signed him to Nonplace, which released Shaker Road in the summer of 2002.
