Born in ’77 (Holland) and growing up in the 80's with music like Eno, YMO, Kraftwerk, and minimal musicians like Reich, it was inevitable that this would influence the way he creates and experiences music. So it isn’t surprising that Stanley Swinkels (a.k.a. Cymphonic) is very sensitive to ambiences and loops, especially those that are deep and mysterious but also warm and melancholic. In recent years his music has evolved towards a more futuristic organic ambient resulting in the surrealistic atmospheres found on the album Phonema Sacrata. His current sound can be described as a mix of original sounds, recurring evocative themes, dreamy rhythms, field recordings and imaginative samples. His second album Strataradialis is a perfect example of the integration of all these elements into a true ambient collage.
