===============

The name Stendeck is derived from a variation of the final strange Morse code radio message sent by the plane Stardust on August 2nd, 1947 before its mysterious disappearance.

Based in Lugano, Switzerland, Alessandro Zampieri, the man behind Stendeck, began his musical career at a very young age exploring music within the confines and possibilities of the piano. Stendeck was eventually formed in 1999 when Alessandro, at the age of 22, turned his attention to the new horizons and fantastic possibilities of electronic music.

As Alessandro developed his sound, Stendeck quickly evolved into a brilliant and notable electronic talent, presenting his audience with a solid contrast of ambient and atmospheric elements, distorted beats, and noisy keys complimented by the presence of acoustic instruments that ultimately invited warm and intriguing soundscapes for his listeners.

After two critically-acclaimed albums, ‘Can You Hear My Call?’ and ”Faces‘ on the now-defunct Geska label, Stendeck brought his signature sound home to the Tympanik Audio family in early 2009 with his captivating new full-length CD titled ‘Sonnambula‘.

Combining epic synth patterns with stunning piano movements and a hint of distorted rhythmic beats, ‘Sonnambula‘ injected an air of originality and purpose that both inspired and moved his listeners to elated heights. With one astounding song after the next, brilliantly-composed and mixed, Stendeck’s new works ultimately conjured up the very essence of intelligent electronica. Driven by distortion-tinged beats, soaring synth-lines, and modern classical elements that spewed emotion from every surface, ‘Sonnambula‘ seemed like Stendeck’s finest hour; but wait…

Stendeck and Tympanik Audio now present his newest collection of works titled ‘Scintilla‘. An energetic spark of creativity full of passion, life, and hope. The creation of a fantastic blaze of emotion, alluring and serendipitous; a spark that creates an everlasting fire. ‘Scintilla‘ is available now…
