Music & Visions – projects selected by Massimo Di Roma + ThePT
Born into a musical family in Argentina, Sebastian Plano is a classically-trained contemporary music composer / multi-instrumentalist.
There are classical musicians who embrace the modern world we live in today and that is what Sebastian Plano does. Already with the first release of his debut album “Arrhythmical Part of Hearts”, Plano has gained international acclaim, placing him as one of the pioneering artists combining classical and electronic elements. His new and second full length album is entitled “Impetus” – a moving force, stimulation and momentum that originated right after completion of his debut album.
Sebastian Plano’s music draws from a wide pool of influences. Indeed, it is influenced by much of classical music, but we also find similarities to some soundtrack composers, as well as certain musicians such as Ólafur Arnalds, Sigur Rós, Arvo Pärt, Nils Frahm or Max Richter. Sebastian has recently collaborated with ex-Kronos Quartet’s cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, who takes part in his forthcoming EP album called “Novel”.
“Impetus” has been released in September 2013 by Denovali Records. The release was accompanied by a re-release of Sebastian Plano’s debut “Arrhythmical Part of Hearts” with entirely new artwork and worldwide distribution.
