Buenos Aires, Argentina
Bruno Sanfilippo is a classically trained musician and composer graduated from the Galvani Conservatory, Buenos Aires, with a degree in musical composition, piano. His focus alternates between the exploration of minimalist piano concepts and electro-acoustic music. He is obsessed with the search for new and unique qualities in music, the magical and the deep. In dreams, there’s no imagined thing that’s too absurd, too strange, and Bruno Sanfilippo’s music comes from that inexhaustible and shameless source. The artist began playing the piano at a young age, starting with the Pleyel piano from his parent’s home in Buenos Aires. Although Sanfilippo draws inspiration from various genres, in his early years, he was influenced by classical composers such as Erik Satie, Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
During the last years, he has made soundtracks for feature films. He has performed live and multimedia events at different stages and festivals of the world. In 1998, Sanfilippo started ad21, a personal platform/label responsible for some of his albums except 'The Poet', which was signed with 1631 Recordings and Decca Publishing in 2016, and 'Unity' released through the Russian label Dronarivm in 2018. He has been lauded as an “exceptionally refined sound-sculptor” and his work has been compared to Max Richter, Arvo Pärt, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ludovico Einaudi, and many more in the area of contemporary classical.
