Born into a musical family in Argentina, Sebastian Plano is a classically-trained contemporary composer and multi-instrumentalist. Exploring his strong roots in folk music and tango, and enchanted by the resonance of electronic music. With his first album release Arrhythmical Part of Hearts (mastered by Nils Frahm), Plano has gained international acclaim, placing him as one of the pioneering artists combining classical and electronic elements. Sebastian Plano’s music has been considered akin to the sounds of Ólafur Arnalds, Sigur Rós, Arvo Pärt, Nils Frahm and Max Richter. Alongside Ben Lukas Boysen, Plano created a score for the award winning Playstation game, Everything. He also recently created a moving ocean-centred composition in association with Havas and Sharp’s Brewery, in aid of a charity that aims to prevent further sea pollution, for which he won a Music Week Sync Award. Plano also recorded and performed the strings for BBC Sound of 2020 winner Celeste’s single Strange.
Plano released his latest full length studio album Verve on Mercury KX in March 2019, following the release of his singles Purples and Éxta in autumn 2018 which were heavily supported at BBC 6 Music with key champions including Mary Ann Hobbs and Tom Robinson. His latest album Verve was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in 2019.
