Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: December 17, 1966

We can say very little about the music we play. The music itself could say much more about us. Why is it interesting to know where we are from, who we are, when were we born, and so on, if you come to listen to music?

Destiny is a strange thing too… We could do something, but we can't. We could be somewhere, but we are not. And what will be the last point in our life? No one knows.

His personality doesn't rely on a bold presence -- his is anything but imposing -- but instead makes his mark through a wry delivery which seems to always find the mark and determinedly pursue it.” - 'Seek it Not With Your Eyes' review by Morgan Martin

”While Gratkowski, Gramss and Bledsoe play quite well here, it’s Lapin who impressed me as one of the most subtle prepared pianists I’ve heard in a while”
-Review of ‘Unplugged Mind’ album by Jason Bivins (Signal to Noise)

”...this music is for those who like and feel an improvisation, for those who is able to paint in one’s imagination the most ingenious forms called up by these sounds.”
-Dmitry Yalkin, GES21, tac.spb.ru

”I never heard of you, but I played impressed by your playing”
-Marco Eneidi (alto sax), marcoeneidi.com
