Concert

The first sounds and frequencies that you are met with when listening to Federico Albanese’s third solo album By the deep Sea are celestial and dense. The sounds of the sea place themselves, in a suitably programmatic way, beneath a soundscape that appears to reach almost as deep as the ocean. Albanese is a master of melancholy who embeds cinematic compositions and airy arrangements into his playing. He serves this with arpeggios accompanied by strings and meticulously measured out rhythms. Besides working with a grand piano, he employed a Rhodes Piano, Synthesizers, Hammond Organ, electric, acoustic and bass guitars as well as field recordings.

His album was just released with Neue Meister. The journey to this album led the Milan-born composer from early guitar and clarinet classes, an adolescence including a foray into diverse rock bands, the study of double bass and work on various film sets, to Berlin. His genuine understanding of the connection between image and sound and the broad spectrum of musical finesse from folk to electronica to classical music, not only manifested itself in his music – be it as a solo artist or in avant-garde duo La Blanche Alchimie with Jessica Einaudi-, but also in soundtrack composition for documentaries, series and films.
