Fabrizio Paterlini is an Italian composer, gaining our recognition with his elegant modern classical and solo piano works. Secret Book is his latest release, on which Paterlini continues to explore his piano works with an accompaniment of strings and electronics, compiling seven pieces composed over the last two years for this ninth album.

The piano still is the core of my music, but this time it whispers instead of ‘shouting’, and is a part of a larger ensamble in which the acoustic vibrations given by the strings live with the electronic beat of a drum machine or the arpeggio of a synthesizer.

— Fabrizio Paterlini

The album is released on May 12th as a limited edition 12″ 180g vinyl, cardboard 3-panel CD, and digital, and is available for preorder on Bandcamp. You can also catch Paterlini playing live (a few upcoming shows in Berlin and Milan).
