**NOW AVAILABLE ON CD**“’7 of diamonds’ started from a glass of tea with too much sugar. I was pushing down my spoon into the sugar till the bottom of the glass. It was creating a really nice atmosphere and I thought I needed something different like bigger grains, I took a empty glass and I used water and cooking salt the result was amazing so I jumped into the studio to record it and ‘7 of diamonds’ was born.”

Originally hailing from the northern Italian province of Verona, florestano – aka producer and multi-instrumentalist Leonardo Salvaro - spent a majority of the last five years traveling nomadically through Asia, Europe and South America, which, he says, has vastly influenced his creative process. "When you travel the way I used to you have a lot of time in which you’re alone; being alone and far from home could help a part of your artistic expression obligating you to look more into your emotions and what really matter for you."

Employing both analogue and digital recording techniques, almost all of florestano’s compositions start at his old black piano and his drums before he moves into more experimental territory with synths as well as field recordings. Often taking cues from renowned avant-garde composers Bernard Parmegiani and Iannis Xenakis, florestano’s electronic soundscapes and compositions show a natural affinity for oriental cinematic scores, classic lieder’s music especially Hugo Wolf and 90s US west coast experimental scene.
