Layering piano, cello, and percussion with electronic sounds and treatments, his solo recordings often give the impression of full chamber ensemble performances. He has received notable attention for co-writing the score for the 2017 video game Everything, as well as his Grammy-nominated 2019 full-length Verve. Plano was born in Rosario, Argentina, in 1985 to parents who played in the city's symphony orchestra. Influenced by classical music as well as tango, he began playing the cello when he was seven, and started writing music at 12. He was awarded full scholarships from institutes such as the United World College of the Adriatic, the Boston Conservatory, and the San Francisco Conservatory. He was also highly interested in electronic music, with Vangelis being a formative early influence, and experimented with music software in his spare time. He found some success with his early compositions -- a four-movement orchestral piece premiered at Rosario's Opera House in 2008. Plano self-released his first album, Arrhythmical Part of Hearts, in 2011, when he was living in San Francisco. Performing anywhere he possibly could, from the park and the metro to art galleries and house parties, he drummed up interest in his work, and eventually Denovali Records expressed interest in releasing his music. Nils Frahm mastered Plano's second album, Impetus, and he also recommended the label, who simultaneously released Impetus and reissued Arrhythmical Part of Hearts in 2013. Before Denovali released these albums, Plano had finished recording a third full-length, as well as an EP with cellist Jeffrey Ziegler. However, a thief broke into Plano's car and stole his computer and two hard drives, which contained the completed recordings, and they were never recovered. Plano relocated to Berlin and started re-creating his lost material, but ultimately wasn't satisfied with the results, and he decided to move on and write new music. Plano and Ben Lukas Boysen co-wrote music for the ambitious, universe-building video game Everything, which was released to much acclaim in 2017. Erased Tapes issued the score, with the full digital release containing over three hours of music. In 2018, Plano participated in a project called Keynvor, which incorporated sounds from the Atlantic Ocean, and aimed to raise awareness about sewage pollution. The EP Preservation was released that year by Mercury KX. The imprint then issued Plano's full-length Verve in 2019. The album was nominated for Best New Age Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
