Orquesta Metafisica was created in Buenos Aires in 2009. Its name is a tribute to the Argentinian thinker of the early XXth century Macedonio Fernandez, known for his metaphysical writing and for his investigations about the reality.
Not fitting into any defined category, Orquesta Metafisica has drawn inspiration from innovators of rock, jazz, tango and contemporary avant-garde music to develop its own way of transmitting the mystery of life.
The compositions reflect an unusual versatile background of the composer Sebastian Volco, who studied classical and popular music, composed for contemporary ballet and art exhibitions, pursued a career on the Argentinian rock stage and, later, on the the stage of contemporary tango. The band's current personal sound was honed with arrival of Sebastian Rosenfeldt, an expert in ambient music and electronic tango, as the band's producer and bass player. ORQUESTA METAFISICA blends profoundness and mysticism with energy of rock and jazz.

Europe in 2013 where it continued working on its
bold multidisciplinary projects. One of those is this

“A show worth both hearing and seeing. The “mad pianist” extraverted conduct of Volco and contrapuntal interactions among the musicians make this concert totally different from anything that can be found in Buenos Aires today.”
