After Nils Frahm, Hania Rani, Joep Beving and Grandbrothers, Italian composer, pianist and music producer Federico Albanese will play on board! Albanese’s compositions are airy and cinematic, combining classical music, pop and psychedelia.
Between before and now; between reality and imagination; between memory and remembering. Federico Albanese’s stunning new album Before And Now Seems Infinite captures and inhabits these moments and passages of time. Each exquisitely rendered fusion of modern - classical and electronic hues with traces of jazz and avant - garde pop, is inspired by a specific memory and the suggestion that, in the words of French novelist Marcel Proust, “ Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.”
“There are multiple ways in which we perceive a memory” says composer and multi-instrumentalist Albanese, who grew up in Milan and now calls Berlin home.“ We might remember things from different angles and give them different meanings. I find it interesting to explore the instant where we decide how we are going to remember something. And music is the vehicle I use to find these moments, to hold them in time.”
