Album artwork for The Houseboat and the Moon by Federico Albanese

Federico Albanese is a composer born in Milan, Italy and currently based in Berlin. His musical versatility is a natural gift that pushes him to explore music in all its facets. Albanese's compositions are airy and cinematic, blending classical music, electronics and psychedelia. In February 2014 Federico Albanese released his debut album entitled The Houseboat and the Moon. He recorded all of the piano parts with a 1969 German tape recorder, the Uher Royal Deluxe, which allowed him to catch all of the tiny hidden shades, the imperfections, the noises of the piano and its surrounding space. Federico melts this rarefied sound with electronics, live recordings, strings, and homemade instruments. The Houseboat and the Moon has been described as pure gold and one of the most beautiful modern classical albums of the past years.
