:::::: Lorenzo Masotto ::::::
I’m an Italian pianist and composer. I’m graduated Pianoforte and Composition at the Conservatory F.E.Dall’Abaco abacus in Verona then studied at The Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt in Weimar (Germany)
My journey with music began at the age of nine when I started playing piano. After years spent studying composition and jazz, I moved forward diving into prog/post rock music, with my own project called Le Maschere di Clara. Along with this I’ve been involved in theatre and film music, composing original soundtracks.
I’ve never only thought about writing in just one music style. I love music, at its essence, and everything I write increases my confidence and ability to write from a wider perspective.
I published four albums, "Silk" in 2015 (Alfa music), "Rule and Case" in the 2016 (Preserved Sound), "Aeolian Processes" in 2017 (Dronarivm) and "White Materials" in 2017. I also composed two soundtracks for two short-films, "Giulia" in 2015 (directed by Carlo Perassi) and "Paradox" in 2016 (Directed by Nicolò Filippozzi).
Over the past 4 years I’ve been playing my music all over Europe, and my compositions are transmitted by BBC and KEXP radio.

The brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke or Brueder Selke, mostly known as CEEYS are East German composers and poly-instrumentalist recording artists and performers based in Potsdam, nearby Berlin.
While mainly connected to the fields of contemporary classical and ambient music, their works balance these genres.
BS perform an idiosyncratic style that is characterised by intimate and playful improvisations and a rather reduced approach to contemporary composition.
By exploiting their knowledge of songwriting, textures and repetitive patterns, they create an experimental but accessible minimalism between the avant-garde and pop that incorporates elements of jazz, ambient and classical chamber music.
Indebted to their childhood environments, their music is as much a product of their childhood landscapes, as it is the modern world in which they live.
Their award-winning work is provoked by their urge to explore recollections of their youth, both before and after the fall of the Communist regime, and to apply those lessons and influences to contemporary music.
In October 2020 they released "Hausmusik" which saw John Lewis describe it as "...metronomic, Nyman-ish miniatures that sound as if they’ve been plotted on graph paper; tracks like Reunion see them jabber rhythmically, with Sebastian playing pizzicato; elsewhere they explore texture – creaking strings, bashed wood, triple stopping – over minimal one-chord drones with a horror-movie intensity." The Guardian writes.
New music and projects are set for release in 2021.
