Be swept away on waves of meditative sound by genre-fusing Italian composer and pianist Federico Albanese as he launches his third album, By The Deep Sea.
The album is a nuanced and elegant work, with Albanese providing piano, Rhodes piano, synthesizers, Hammond organ, electric, acoustic and bass guitars, plus field recordings.
‘It’s so beautiful to experiment and create layers underneath it. I wanted a feeling of evolution, something that could represent the idea of getting closer and closer to a deep state,’ Albanese said.
His highly acclaimed debut solo album The Houseboat and the Moon was followed by second album The Blue Hour, which pushed the boundaries of his sound even further, mixing compositional precision and dreamlike fluidity.
