The Album

Beau Pluto’s debut album Liberation is a work of art. As such, the interpretations are manifold.

  • Liberation is an analysis of the human psyche. The diverse tracks dissect and reflect the various aspects of our personality, commencing with the joyous and lighthearted façade we present to the world. As the album progresses, we delve deeper and deeper into our own core, encountering moments of longing, romance, sadness, delight, as well as unresolved issues from our past and present. The album gives a voice to both the upbeat and playful but also the darker and painful sides of our being, and helps the listeners to recognise themselves. The result is a triumphant liberation that paves the way to a promising future. The cover shows Pluto “having his own back” and embracing and supporting himself; which represents the most important message of Liberation: Love thyself.
  • In another interpretation, the album represents the liberation of Classical Music. Over the last decades, this genre has come to be viewed as “old-fashioned”, “demure”, and “grave”, and was deprived of any further meaning surpassing the notes on the score. With Liberation, Pluto reinstates the performer as legitimate artist, and makes the rich works of the composers the foundation on which he erects an entire world by interweaving the beauteous melodies with his unique vision. The stories hidden in the music are brought to life and the listener is enchanted, excited, seduced, and at times deeply touched. The reunification of the music with her true spirit is reflected on the album, with playful Beau and solemn Pluto coming together to form Beau Pluto.
  • A third interpretation makes Liberation a very personal account of Beau Pluto’s past. It covers his birth and childhood in the first part of the album, and continues with the narration of his adolescence.

For more information consult the Declaration of Liberation, and take a look into the album booklet of Liberation.
