What I was told by a recording engineer is that Nanes is a  wealthy 
industrialist whose hobbies are playing the piano and  composing.


I met Nanes about 17 years ago - I was programming inflight airline music  
and a rep from his record label came to pitch his recordings. They worked great  
for boarding music (which usually borders on the non-invasive) - To me, his  
stuff was halfway between classical and new age. I even had dinner with him on 
 one occasion - very nice, pleasant, and thoughtful. Serious about his music.
