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’
Extremely limited numbers available: For all intents and purposes, Grand Salvo is the work of singer-songwriter Paddy Mann. Grand Salvo’s debut album, 1642-1727, and its follow-up, River Road, earned him rave reviews and a solid following at home and beyond for his stark, sensitive and beautiful songs.
After a spell living in Europe, Paddy returned to Australia and began work on another album he’d dreamt up while away, A set of songs that acts as a children’s storybook, the album became cursed with too many recording problems and Paddy decided to shelve it. While that project will eventually see the light of day, its plagued nature ironically became the motivation for The Temporal Wheel.
As a sort of pantheist, or at least an artist who finds great stories hiding in the vast visual subtleties of nature – Subtle Trees is a classical music collage as much as it is an homage to classical music. It’s core is created through sounds gathered in the owl hours by sampling ancient instruments whose cores were derived from the trees of nature. These sounds were layered like lichen on an ancient pantheistic sculpture.
Presented in the Tartaruga house style, (thick recycled cardboard gatefold sleeve), this release features a beautiful screen-printed design from Bruno Jones, in bright Phthalo Green. The CD comes with a two-colour screen-printed foldout insert, again featuring illustration from Bruno Jones, printed on high quality Pergamenata paper.
Each CD is numbered from 1 to 200.
