Alessandro Paganelli’s work “Nebula” is a floating, atmospheric tune that is not an overdone film score–rather, it has moments of true delicacy, intimacy, and poise...A true piece of contemporary classical music, it not only pairs acoustic and electronic instruments, but involves sound design and a wash of tone color. Composer'sToolbox
The track moves from grace to grace, weaving strings and piano around each other like a spinning loom. It's easy to get swept up in the grandeur, tension and resolution of this stately composition. Tom to the Weather Machine
Alessandro Paganelli is an Italian composer and guitarist based in Berlin. He composes mainly for his Ensemble made of two violins, cello, piano and his classical guitar.
Born from a musical family (his dad was the guitarist of Milva in the 70’s) Alessandro Paganelli started his musical studies taking guitar lessons, soon entering in the Conservatory of his town at the age of 11.
Willing to improve as a musician, he decided to leave Italy after his bachelor studies, embarking on a self discovery that still influences his music.
It was in Berlin, where, while working as solo performer for different opera productions and various ensemble projects, he started experimenting with different music genres in order to find his own way of expressing his ideas through sounds.
This led to the release of two EPs, Drifting (2017) and Nebula (2018) where he combines classical music with synthesizers and elements from electronic music to express loneliness and the struggle for community.
2018 saw the release of Momentum, a piece for solo piano commissioned by the British label Mellotron (Ameritz Music).
Alessandro Paganelli’s music deals with the individual’s search and self awareness. Classically trained (studying at the Maastricht Conservatorium, Hanns Eisler in Berlin, Accademia Chigiana in Siena), he welcomes in his compositions all the elements from all the present music genres creating unusual connections between the most diverse composers.
Due to be released in 2020 is the full length Album "Sum", a collection of nine compositions about self introspection.
