I hope my music can gain a space in the music history and get recognizable for its identity.
3. How long have you been writing your own music?
My whole life.
4. Who are your top three influences and why? Keith Jarrett and Arvo Pärt in music for their romance and link with spirituality

Fusing elements of ambient, classical and jazz, this five-song collection of tone poems sees Italian composer Ferdinando Arnò teaming up with an eclectic and acclaimed ensemble of musicians to create a truly otherworldly sonic experience.
The project was inspired by an Italian sound installation, Radura, located in the Cortile della Farmacia of Ca ‘Granda in Milan. The installation was designed by celebrated architect and urban planner Stefano Boeri and is a musical oasis perfectly designed for the group’s serene sound.
