"Ripples” is Alejandro Bento’s solo piano work, three pieces that take us through a wide variety of landscapes, tempos and rhythms heavily influenced by dance music. The simplicity of the music exists in contrast to the wide emotional arc of the record. An innocent yet fully embodied piece, this record is an honest and profound approach to Bento’s inner landscape.
In the artist’s own words: “These songs speak of origins and horizons, but above all, they speak of love, friendship and affection, of presence and joy. They speak of following the pulse of the heart and of trust, in one’s self and in others.”
Robot Koch kindly agreed to remix Alejandro’s work and his track points to the direction the label is heading into, an electronic and instrospective yet dynamic and surprising future.
His music is a true journey through the many realms of the heart. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The artwork was created by Alejandro's father, Oscar Bento (AR), as part of a series called Proyecto Chocolate. You can find more about him in our website.
