ad21 is owned and operated by Bruno Sanfilippo and Max Corbacho since 1998. Its primary focus is on ambient | minimalism and contemporary music forms. Our catalog includes ad21's releases, as well as a careful selection of the best artists from the above-mentioned genres, taken from other well known labels.
Our store focuses on the concept of "album", mainly on the physical format (Compact Disc). This way, music and object merge into a final product that transcends the act of listening in a total sensorial experience. We firmly believe instrumental music can lead the soul into a sacred intimacy state.
About Bruno Sanfilippo
"His gift for picture music is the common thread running through it, his earlier works sounding more like soundtrack music and his later works moving into more ambient music realms, though still with a strong sense of imagery" Phil Derby.
Bruno Sanfilippo is a classically trained musician and composer who has been creating music for more then 20 years. His focus alternates between the exploration of minimalist piano concepts, and contemporary hybrids of acoustic and electronic music.
He is obsessed with the search for new and unique qualities in music - the amazing, the magical and the deep. When we dream at night there is nothing that is too absurd or too strange - and Bruno Sanfilippo's music comes from that inexhaustible and shameless source.
He has contributed music to several compilation albums and has collaborated on numerous projects with such noted artists as: Marsen Jules, Mathias Grassow, Byron Metcalf, Max Corbacho and Alio Die.

About Max Corbacho:
Max Corbacho is an independent artist born in the southwest of Spain, in the province of Badajoz. This enormous land sprinkled of oaks where he was born and he spent the first years of his life, is perhaps the deeper track than marks his music. Starred nights of summer, the caress of the nocturnal breeze, the sedative song of the crickets, immense horizons, deeply blue skies, and silence.
The extremely dense and hypnotic sonic landscapes of Max Corbacho are a constant reference to these elements, elements which condense and act as catalysts, pointing to the essence of the great and ineffable mystery of our existence. Corbacho's s musical expression has the ability to enter us in this wonderful mystery.
Since the 1998 debut "Vestiges", Max has without a doubt showcased an alluring, spiritual beauty at the core of each of his recordings, with a sense of reverence, emotional presence and deep feeling that express their visionary experience of sonic architecture. Max Corbacho's last albums follows the progression into deep, silken ambience set by The Resonant Memory of Earth and The Talisman: Breathstream and Ars Lucis deepen in the search of sublime melody-free magnificence, ethereal electronics and vaporous textures.
Max has also worked in close collaboration with Argentine musician (settled now in Barcelona) Bruno Sanfilippo, releasing a CD together and setting up the record label "ad21".
