Bruno Sanfilippo relaunch and revives his acclaimed album InTRO (2006) as a special remastered & expanded edition on CD and Digital. Available worldwide via ad21 as of September 20th.
The album (65:28) contains its seven original soundscapes plus two unreleased; InTROpolar (7:10) and InTROsense (6:11), taken from recording sessions in May 2006.
These nine records were recently analog remastered from the original master by Ian Hawgood. The cover art was redesigned using the original photography of Helyn Davenport.
‘In his nine compositions of imaginary ‘InTROspective’ Sanfilippo explores the interest in the unfettered possibilities of dreams. Its impact is strongly imaginative and cinematic, featuring deep piano interludes, great synthesizer pads, field recordings, soft soaring sound textures and transparent soundscapes’
With The Rules of Another Small World, M. Ostermeier has arrived at an elegant voice – otherworldly and strangely beautiful, much like the desolate Taiwanese San-Zhr Pod Village gracing the album cover.
While elements of electroacoustic, modern classical, jazz, glitch, drone, ambient, and even lounge weave in and out of the record’s eleven compositions, The Rules of Another Small World is the converse of an eclectic collection of songs.

Bridge Carols is the meeting of two artists with unique timeless approaches to music. Neo-Americana folk singer Laura Gibson is gifted with a soft and singular voice (not unlike the voices of Josephine Foster and Joanna Newsom) and writes songs that could date back a century or foretell a future rural life. Electronician Ethan Rose is vested in antiquated instruments and technologies – a sonic recycler who, out of the old, has been creating a new form of ambient music.
