Last year, London based "Slowcraft records" released my debut album "Hidden for the Eyes" as opener of ‘exceptional, unclassifiable music’ edition. It was the first time the prestigious foreign label released Slovak album sung in Slovak language. This album was full eight years of making and tries to capture the worlds that exist beyond our limited perception capabilities. I try to make spiritual music and combine genres such as: neo-classical with opera male singer, electro-acoustic, experimental electronica, ambient and folk. https://slowcraft.bandcamp.com/album/hidden-for-the-eyes
Debut album was recognized and praised at 60+ different sites worldwide, including BBC6, XLR8R, Bandcamp daily ("Ten Musicians Updating Electroacoustic Music for the 21st Century"), Red Bull Music UK("8 essential ambient artists you need to know"), Fluid Radio, Headphone Commute and many more (https://alapastelsite.wordpress.com/press-radio/) Journalists wrote for example: “Alapastel expands the borders of post-classical music.”(ambientblog), "Alapastel is a labour of love"(Headphone Commute), "leaves behind a soulprint." (Fluid Radio). Music was compared to artist like Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds or Max Richter.
We would love to grow artistically and play live in some peaceful venues for people who treasure music made with honesty, integrity and depth.
I work with 3 experienced and respected musicians, who actively playing live for many years.
We can offer advanced electro-accoustic performance.
The musicians are: Adam Dekan (Multi-instrumentalist , active modular synthesist, producer and runner of bands Sine Ray, Núku, Gladia Moony and others, active since 2009), Marián Hrdina (male opera singer, member of Slovak National philharmonic choir), Alex Lukáčová (musician and singer in bands Núku and Gladia Moony).
