THE SECRET OF THE SEA represents for Bavota a step towards experimentation, even if the piano is always the core of his compositions he felt he wanted to give something more. Beside the sound of the eighty-eight keys, now we find delay and reverb as in “Me and You”, the track where the research of himself into the sea begins.
In “The man who chased the Sea” the sound of the piano is accompanied by acoustic guitars producing the impression of a relentless rush that never seems to stop. “If only my heart were wide like the Sea” is the shortest episode but it is representative of the album as many,here the charming arpeggio of the acoustic guitar is lightly touched by the piano distantly.
