Mischa Blanos

Emerging from somewhere in Eastern Europe - we are pleased to welcome Mischa Blanos, pianist and composer, into the fold of artists at InFiné !

We first came across Mischa when on the search for music from around the globe for our Explorer series. We found him in Berlin. We were moved by his classical skills, his connection with music-of-the-now, and his individual spice of Slavic soul.

Mischa Blanos composes, performs and physically transforms the piano, giving life to a new acoustic-electronic blend. He was trained in classical piano from the age of seven (winner of a long list of classical music prizes) and then self-trained as a composer and on-stage entertainer. He is all about one single instrument: the piano. He uses its sound in pure acoustic, mixed with morphed live sampling to create acoustic-electronic soundscapes of contemporary pieces. He is part of a new wave of the neoclassical piano musicians’ movement, composing music in which “piano is percussion”.

He draws his music from a large bowl of influences. You may have the paradoxical sensation to listen to classical sounds while also having the feeling of listening to electronic music; as he loves experimenting and combining sounds and rhythms. Blanos gives performances made of pianissimo and forte, calmness and frenzy - using his power of captivating people by sheer instinct whenever he is on stage.

Look out for the first EP release from Mischa Blanos out Summer 2018, on InFiné !
