On his debut “lucen” the piano player / electronic artist afarOne explores the sonic fields between ambient / electronica and the works of contemporary composers of silence such as Arvo Part. Hailing from Spain, the classical trained piano player Stefano Ruggeri (b. 1976) aka afarOne spent 3 years working on his debut longplayer. Influenced by artists such as Alva Noto, Thomas Köner or Mira Calix o the one hand and the great modernists of 20thcentury classical music as Gustav Mahler, Anton Webern or Alban Berg, afarOne presents eight instrumental tracks melting both worlds: melancholic piano drops (Tupfer) and far away strings meet ambient soundscapes, subtly pulsating beats and haunting, drony undercurrents. Dreamlike introspective passages give room to emotionally tense heights
