Lost & Found is the latest album from Sanfilippo. The artist takes four songs that were once buried and lost in other collections, curating them together to create a new sound and feel. This reimagination allows the listener to discover each piece, as if for the first time. The songs have the power to pull memories from us, of either real or imagined experience and the ethereal sounds are, at once, familiar and an exploration. This transformation invites the listener to experience Lost & Found as an act of losing and finding something again.
This 44 minute piece may structurally resemble a classical composition – divided as it is into several interlocking stanzas – but it’s difficult to place it comfortably within the realm of modern music. If anything, ‘The Rest….’ evokes the otherwordly, fantastical obsessions of the Victorians (Conan Doyle, Lear, Grandville, Wellcome, etc) through means of meticulously manipulated instrumentation, samples and voice.Plinth, of course, is no stranger to Victoriana.
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.
