04.28.08:
Stendeck signs to Tympanik Audio for album release... Based in Lugano, Switzerland,
Stendeck is the electronic music moniker of Alessandro Zampieri, an extrodinarily talented composer that blends lush ambiance with distorted beats and noisy keys to open up inviting organic soundscapes that will stay with you like a good friend. With each majestic aural jaunt, Stendeck takes his listener on one beautiful audio journey after another through cavernous resonances, distorted beats, wafering melodies, and carefully surging synthlines. Each track is thoughtfully planned and executed, leading the listener through a wide range of sonic emotions without even the slightest moment of abandonment. After two critically-acclaimed albums, 'Can You Hear My Call?' and last year's excellent 'Faces', Stendeck now brings his signature sound home to the Tympanik Audio family for a new full-length album slated for release in winter 2008/09. Stendeck's album 'Faces' is available for order in the Tympanik Webshop: http://www. tympanikaudio. com/order. htm
