Alessandro Zampieri, the man behind Stendeck, born June 14th 1977 in Lugano,
Switzerland, began his musical career at a very young age playing the Piano.
Stendeck was formed in 1999 when Alessandro Zampieri at the age of 22 turned
his attention to the new borders of electronic music.
In 2002 Stendeck put all his efforts in the making of his first demo album,
"a crash into another world" which had very good reviews and a warm welcome
from music fans all over Switzerland.
The beginning of 2003 marked a change for Stendeck, when Alessandro, seeking
new experiences, worked on the audio effects of a very interesting
short-film "The Bridge", by a promising young director, Gaston Dupuy.
During the same year he started working on his debut album, taking a
completely different approach and pushing the boundaries of his sonic
research even further. This new record builds his strengths on his
songwriting abilities leading the listener in a mindblowing musical
experience. The album is called "Can you hear my call?" and was mastered by
Mike Wells (Gridlock). Finally in December 2004 Stendeck joined Geska

|Can you hear my call?|
Can you hear my call? is not only the key that will open your mind,
it's the glorious answer to what music should remain:
a celebration inspired by death who is still breathing life!
01 citylights slide behind you, and you are just like a small star lost in the night
02 waiting for a new day
03 lonely souls can't dance
04 killing the man in the mirror
05 5 a.m. when the night kisses the day
06 numbered, well ordered, stocked in a big grey square of boxes (metropolitan disease)
07 Sigiriya's tear
08 cold vapour smoke was coming from his mouth
09 walking above the clouds
10 sssilence, sleeping in the Japanese garden
11 monsters are getting closer - black shadows swallow dreams
12 waking up into unknown lands
13 falling leaves, like red pillows on my wounds
14 frozen sun
15 can you hear my call?
Stendeck is known for his finesse and creativity.
This album is delicious blend of upbeat & downtempo electronica
that relies heavily on distorted and dirty beats, luminous soundscapes and basslines. It's beautiful in the roughest way possible.
