Stano has been a recording artist and composer since the early ‘80’s, with 8 albums numerous singles and film soundtracks to his credit. He is regarded as a true innovator, with an intense understanding of sonic structure and, always ahead of his time.
Extract: Irish Rock: Roots, Personalities, Directions – Mark Prendergast:
“One of the major distinguishing features of avant-garde music, was, and still is, in its approach to creativity. A self-confessed ‘non-musician’, Stano has completely shunned historical achievements in any musical form, opting instead for a naive working method that formulates sound out of an organic framework. Most people if they were to attempt something like this would end up with a selection of indiscriminate noise works of unbearably low quality, but Stano’s intuitive grasp of sonic architecture has resulted in possibly the most individual hybrid of rock, experimental and electronic music ever to come out of Ireland…”
Alternative+Press – USA:
“A multi-talented operator, Stano’s contribution to Irish rock cannot in any way be ignored. He is the first Irish rock artist to play the studio like an instrument, the first to allow intuition with regard to electronics, sound and chance occurrences to govern his output”.
Hot Press Magazine:
“Lyrically and philosophically, if Sam Beckett was around today, I’d say he’d fancy a spell in the studio doing spoken word with Stano”
