Info zu The Houseboat and the Moon (Reworked)

Federico Albanese, geboren 1982 in Mailand (IT), ist Komponist und wohnt derzeit in Berlin. Seine musikalische Vielseitigkeit verdankt er seinem Talent, das ihn kontinuierlich antreibt, Musik in all seinen Facetten entdecken zu wollen. Federicos Kompositionen wirken leichtfüßig und cineastisch, verbinden klassische Musik mit elektronischen und psychedelischen Sounds. Im Februar 2014 erscheint das Debut-Album 'THE HOUSEBOAT AND THE MOON' von Federico Albanese bei Denovali Records.

Er hat damit einen Ort gefunden - einen imaginären Ort - wo er, wann immer er auch möchte, aufspringen und sich wegtragen lassen kann. Auf diesem beweglichen Unterschlupf schrieb Federico die 13 Kompositionen seines Debuts - durch Erinnerungen und imaginierte Welten reisend, beruhigt vom Wasser und vom Mond angetrieben. Alle Klavierparts sind mit einem deutschen Tonbandgerät aus dem Jahr 1969 aufgenommen worden, dem Uher Royal Deluxe, das ihm ermöglichte, sämtliche versteckte Nuancen einzufangen: das Unvollkommene, die Geräusche des Klaviers und seiner Umgebung. Federico lässt seinen verfeinerten Klavierklang mit elektronischer Musik, Live- Aufnahmen, Streichern und selbstgebauten Instrumenten verschmelzen.

Das Resultat ist eine Kombination aus Kontrasten und Farben, die eine abwechslungsreiche Atmosphäre schafft und auf wunderbare Art und Weise Federicos musikalisches Universum widerspiegelt. Für Hörer von PHILIP GLASS, YANN TIERSEN, CLINT MANSELL, MAX RICHTER. Rezensionen

„Die auf Klavier, Cello, manchmal noch Vibrafone, Glockenspiel und Bassoon gespielten 13 Stücke fließen angenehmst ins Ohr, sind auf wohlige Schauer aus und alles andere als aufdringlich.“ (Jazzthing)

Influenced by black music, folk, electronic, modern and contemporary classical music his skills as a composer soon emerged, He worked for 5 years as prop man in several film sets. This experience made him understand the power of the connection between music and images and helped him to develop his personal musical path. In 2007 he met singer and songwriter Jessica Einaudi and together they founded the avant-garde duo “La Blanche Alchimie”. Composing songs with Jessica he rediscovered his love for the piano, which from that moment on, became his main instrument. They released 2 albums and gained national and international critical attention, performing around Europe, Russia and USA. Their sound has been described as melancholic and haunting, intermingling mellow acoustics and rock-infused dreamscapes.The first omonymous album was released in Italy in 2009 on Ponderosa/Edel. The second album “Galactic Boredom” was released in Italy in 2011 on Ponderosa/Universal and in Germany in 2012 on Q-rious/Edel. In september 2012 the band has been nominated by “Preis der deutschenShallplattenkritik” in the category of best independent album. In 2010 he scored the soundtrack of the short film “Pick up” by Manyhands - a collective of young italian directors - broadcasted by one the most important italian television channels (SKY). In 2012 he scored the soundtrack of documentary “Fabulae Romane” filmed by Matteo Cherubino, a work that documents the first of a structured set of activities of Zegnart - a project commissioned by Ermenegildo Zegna dedicated to the art of our time - that took place at MaXXI - National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome.
