Federico Ferrandina

Which are the genres that describe your music style better?

Federico Ferrandina:
Neoclassical, Electronic, Experimental. I call my own genre Hyperclassical, which is a blend of classical tradition, XXth century music and contemporary sound design elements and techniques

Few words about your musical background and career?

Federico Ferrandina:
I was born in a family of classical musicians, that heritage seemed destined to pair my hunger for diverse musical galaxies with non-musical disciplines like literature, modern dance and sociology. This wide constellation shaped my unique and yet multi-layered grammar of sound, where classical instruments are surrounded by a contemporary arsenal of synthesizers, drones and drum machines with the light touch of contrapuntal writing and tridimensional harmonies. I teamed up with artists of all kinds (world music stars Yasmin Levy and Omar Faruk Tekbilek, pop artist Michele Bravi, rock collective Playing For Change, jazz big bands, Grammy winner producers, choreographers and filmmakers). My production gained attention in the entertainment industry, and many of my works are currently part of some of the major movies and tv shows soundtracks, such as the multi-Oscar winner Dallas Buyers Club or renown tv show The Big Bang Theory.

Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Federico Ferrandina:
Even if I was already able to play some piano music, when I was 10 years old I listened for the first time to Yesterday by the Beatles, and that was the deepest feeling I ever experienced in my life, it really touched me. That’s when I understood how a musical emotion could change you.

What are you currently working on?

Federico Ferrandina:
Some film music: an American mystery/fantasy drama and a Canadian animation movie. I’m also preparing some music for 2023 to complete my Hypermetropia project, Defence will be part of an album with that title.

Many artists listen to genres that they are not producing music for. Which track is your favorite that is NOT similar to yours?

Federico Ferrandina:
070 Shake Body

Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?

Federico Ferrandina:
Deru The Way Through The Forest

“This piece of music is one of the best I've heard in a while. Beautiful themes, strings sections, lush piano, arranged perfectly. I hope that this would feature in some movie soundtrack one day. Something that I played in a loop for an hour, just amazing, pure musical art.”



Sleeping Lily – On It Goes

Categories: Audio, Features, Neoclassical, Neoclassical Features, The Latest|Tags: , |

“The breathing of the chamber orchestra and the lonely crying of the piano in the middle of the ice lake. Music, which constrains your hearts, connects the lonely souls of everyone who has lost their way in the darkness and is looking for a satellite. Here it is - your music is a guiding star. Take her hand and follow her where the light is. The heart will not deceive.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Дыхание камерного оркестра и одинокий плач фортепиано посередине ледяного озера. Музыка, которая сковывает ваши сердца, связывает одинокие души всех, кто заблудился во тьме и ищет спутника. Вот она — музыка ваша путеводная звезда. Возьмите её за руку и иди за ней туда, где свет. Сердце не обманет.”



Liam MacLean – Lost Thoughts

“Мимо такой музыки пройти невозможно. Её нельзя выключить или сделать тише, перемотать на другой трек или недослушать до конца. Музыка, которая однажды посетив вашу душу уже никогда не покинет её. Очень красивое неоклассическое произведение от -Liam MacLean-.”



Roman Nagel – Mireya

Categories: Audio, Features, Neoclassical, Neoclassical Features, The Latest|Tags: , , , |

“If there is a dance on the ice, then why cannot there be a dance of the soul, in which the piano melody entered the lake like a white swan. Charm and love in every note played, feelings that pour over the edge and drip with warm tears right under the feet.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Если существует танец на льду, то почему не может существовать танца души, в которую словно белый лебедь в озеро вошла мелодия фортепиано. Очарование и любовь в каждой сыгранной ноте, чувства, которые льются через край и капают тёплыми слезами прямо под ноги.”


Artist said about this song:

"This single is dedicated to my beloved and wonderful ex-girlfriend Mireya. She motivated me to write this track. Even though things went wrong back then, there is a bright gratitude in me when I remember our time. We should always cherish people we once loved. "


The String Theory – Solar Song

Categories: Audio, Features, Neoclassical, Neoclassical Features, The Latest|Tags: , , , |

“The beauty and magic of a chamber orchestra, in which you can enjoy the singing of violins, the piano melody and plunge into the thick atmosphere of the female choir. A little sad, melancholy, but crazy beauty, which will leave behind a whole bouquet of unforgettable emotions!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Красота и волшебство камерного оркестра, в котором можно насладиться пением скрипок, мелодией фортепиано и погрузиться в густую атмосферу женского хора. Немного грустная, меланхоличная, но безумной красоты композиция, которая оставит после себя целый букет незабываемых эмоций!”


The Grammy-nominated ensemble The String Theory are releasing ‘Solar Song’ - An intrinsic piece with a profound strings and vocalists motif - a musical flow carrying the idea that humans are made of the same stuff as the stars and each and every one carries Light, like an inner sun shining from within, maybe some would call it a soul. The melody generates from the feeling that each individual, each soul has a melody, its very own song, that is as old as the echo of creation. This unusual song will leave you pondering on your stardust origin while floating through the relativity of time.
