ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Silvan Stâncel was born in Alba Iulia, Romania, on July 2th, 1978, in a family with strong artistic tendencies, his father being a poet and his sister a painter. He fell in love with the guitar at the age of 17, in a camp where he learned the first chords and, once he got home, he found a guitar brought by chance by his sister who, although with some minor defects, captured all his attention. From that moment on, Silvan, a self-taught guitar player, practiced every day, up to twelve hours a day without stopping. After the first three months of study, he had already mastered the main chords and was able to play along any song. A bit later, he discovered classical guitar and irremediably fell in love with it. He learned classical guitar pieces "by the ear", but realized that, in order to perfect himself, he must begin studying musical theory. As a student in Cluj-Napoca, he got acquainted with various artists and guitar lovers. Among others, he met Andras Varga, from whom he "stole" the flamenco guitar techniques, a music style that would strongly influence Silvan. He started composing his first instrumental and voice-guitar songs. At the same time, he had the first public performances, singing and playing his own creations. After graduating from the university, Silvan returned to Alba Iulia, continuing to study classical guitar, flamenco, and jazz still as self-taught. The public performances were very rare until October 2006, when composer and singer Vali Serban suggested him to compete in the Ziua de Mâine ("Tomorrow") National Festival Competition of Folk Music in Alba Iulia, although his compositions surpass the borders of this musical genre. Then, little by little, he got invitations from the all over the country to other festivals of this kind and others, where his compositions brought him the most important prizes. Thus, Silvan got to meet the most valued artists of the moment, befriending some of them. Besides, he befriends with some of the younger artists he met during these festivals. Presently, Silvan Stâncel is invited to perform to various festivals and artistic exhibitions from all over the country and abroad.

„The guitar chose me...

I don’t think of anything when I compose, I don’t plan anything regarding my guitar, my music. I sing what I feel, I feel what I sing, I’m not myself without my guitar. I connect myself to something beyond the chords and I wish to stay there. There are no words, no time, no minutes „there” but there is something to which I continuously get connected to any time I’m allowed. It's a challenge, a battle with myself, an absolute freedom. What am I? Who am I? My guitar only can know...”
