Get Lost is Bruno Bavota's first studio album since the 2016 release of Il Pozzo D'Amor thrust him into that peculiar world of anonymous but significant success via high-volume streaming playlists and high-profile TV commercials. Il Pozzo D'Amor would be his last album of immaculate, traditional piano music. If Get Lost isn't a complete reinvention, it is at the very least a completely different direction. Rather than obsess over the sound of the piano itself, Bavota now explores the sounds around the piano - the resonance, the silence, and the acoustic ambience of the living, breathing space in which the piano resides. He employs an array of outboard effects pedals and processors to not just capture those sounds that are often overlooked, but to sample, loop, and reposition them as central figures in a story. Bruno Bavota gave Get Lost its name when he found himself drifting deeper into the darker side of his music. Inspired by a familiar observation of modern life, Bavota confessed, "I think people are becoming more selfish and don't seem to have time to listen to other people who need to be heard. We don't show much empathy." Much like Bavota's evolving approach to the piano, he has discovered profound purpose and influence in the people and places least visible but most meaningful.
