A person who is sat down at a piano. Their eyes are closed and their hands are resting on the keys. They have long scruffy hair, a beard and are wearing a shirt.

Federico Albanese’s contemporary-classical compositions are inflected with jazz, avant-pop and electronica.

Whilst piano predominates the Berlin-via-Milan multi-instrumentalist’s work, he also employs a wide range of sounds including tape processing, synthesisers, melodica and electric guitar.

Albanese’s latest album ‘Before and Now Seems Infinite’ is his debut outing on Universal’s genre-defying Mercury RX imprint and features guest vocals from Marika Hackman and Ghostpoet. It also sees him explore memory via striking and haunting compositions that create poignantly vivid soundscapes.

“Lyrical, rhythmic and emotive modern classical sound that enthrals to the last”


Support from

Julian Zyklus

Berlin-based musician and sound designer, Julian Zyklus has set the gold standard for whimsical and experimental electronica. A member of the band ‘A Toys Orchestra’, his solo career was born out of exploring ambient soundscapes full of delicate piano, synthesisers and sampled loops before releasing his first solo album with Hush Hush Records in 2019.

Zyklus’ music has received praise from Hans Zimmer, led to collaborations with Tangerine Dream member Hoshiko Yamane, cult Italian singer Nada, Slowdive producer Jeremy Glover, and even a performance at a private Gucci party at the S. Maria Novella museum in Florence.
