The solo piano track "I Giorni" has been featured on a BBC advert for arts and culture programmes. The same solo track has also been used in a commercial for the Indian telecom service provider Airtel, to launch its 3G services in the sub-continent in the November of 2010.[1]

The title track, "I Giorni" has had a lot of interest due to Greg James' airing in June 2011 of the piece on BBC Radio 1.[2] The song entered the UK Singles Chart at #32 on 12 June 2011.[3]
