Info for Impetus



Born into a musical family in Argentina, Sebastian Plano is a classically-trained contemporary music composer / multi-instrumentalist. Exploring his strong roots in folk music, Tango, and enchanted by the resonance of electronic music, he began to interpret his imagination into own sounds at the age of 12.

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.

In comparison to Plano's debut, "Impetus" comprises a larger acoustic instrumentation and a nurtured way of handling sounds. Instruments and sounds are added and dropped, the tempo is raised and lowered, sudden subtle changes of mood generate forward motion and lead us into new episodes and interludes. The tone is by turns insistently yearning, wistfully pretty, gently melancholic, and urgently rhythmic. Intimate quiet moments leading to vast soundscapes of strings and electronic percussion. Plano's new album is full of such miniature dramas, filled with life and beauty creating a storyline of boundless imagination.

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.

"...a fine example of how to thread human character through classical mastery." (Rock-A-Rolla)

"Fans of minimalistic yet powerful melodies should not miss this!" (SLAM)

"Based on the evidence at hand, it would be easy to imagine seeing his name scrolling amongst the credits at the end of some future major film production." (Textura)

Sebastian Plano, piano, electronics

Recorded and mixed by Nils Frahm
