Out in a few days is “Carnage”, the all new album by Stendeck, an artist based in Lugano, Switzerland. Stendeck ala Alessandro Zampieri released a number of albums on Geska Records and Tympanik Audio but the project didn’t release anything new since 2015.

Zampieri is a classically trained pianist and formed Stendeck in 1999 as part of a growing interest in electronic music. In 2002 he made his first demo album, “A crash into another world” which was followed by the 2005 album “Can you hear my call” on Geska Records in a mastering by Mike Wells of Gridlock. After the release of “Faces” in 2007, also on Geska Records, Stendeck switched to Tympanik Audio for his next album, “Sonnambula” (2009). Two more releases followed, “Scintilla” (2011) and “Folgor” (2015), after which the project hibernated.

Featured on this all new album are vocals of Kristi Lyn Scaccia and the voices of the ‘Les Voix Obscures’ choir. The album is out as a double vinyl (in a limited edition of just 200 copies) and on CD.

Here’s the video for the excellent track “Somewhere nobody knows”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
