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 Kner 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 Ruggeri masterly understands to well-consideredly place the sounds and create a sonic cosmos rich of colours. "lucen" (Spanish for shining, luminous) is exactly this: a shimmering star, clear and at hand's reach but yet far away, intangible at the same time as the pseudonym afarOne pointedly expresses. Limited edition of 222 handnumbered items.
