Federico Ferrandina Interview on Nagamag
Which are the genres that describe your music style better?
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?
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?
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?
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?
070 Shake Body
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which is the track from a similar artist you admire?
Deru The Way Through The Forest
