The classic debut album from Waves on Canvas get's a well
Waves on Canvas is the brainchild of Italian composer Stefano Guzzetti. Following the much praised 7” vinyl single Angel (Vocals by Louise Rutkowski of This Mortal Coil & artwork by Vaughan Oliver) the artist has decided to work with many other well respected
vocalists for his debut album Into The Northsea.
On the album Guzzetti also handpicked two of his own personal heroes Ian Masters (Pale Saints / 4AD) & Pieter Nooten (Xymox / Michael Brook / 4AD).
Guzzetti was born in 1972 in Cagliari, the capital city of Sardinia, an island of the Mediterranean sea. At the age of 9 he fell in love with Bach’s organ works and decided to take organ lessons. After receiving a computer as a gift, Stefano, inspired by Kraftwerk,began programming sounds and noises. His love affair with electronica began.Then in his teenage years, musical influences like the sound of the electric bass along with the music of Joy Division, The Cure, Siouxsie & the Banshees, and a lot of 4AD artists would also inform his own future musical endeavours.
"This could be Ulrich Schnauss and the sound of shoegaze electronica." Mark Carry, Fracturedair.com
"Guzzetti shows an admirable amount of skills, from classic piano themes to more experimental, electronic instrumentation."

"Into The Northsea is a colorful, rhythmically orientated dream pop ambient album which features a nice combination of micro-sounds, immediately recognizable melodies which positively embrace the essence of soothing mellow electronic music. A pleasant listening,
quite charming and accessible to all." Philippe Blache, Igloomag.com
