Deluxe re-issue of the rare 1988 Spiritual / New-Age / Folk / Electronic and Experimental LP by Italian contemporary composer, conceptualist and multi-instrumentalist Paolo Modugno.
Brise D’Automne – originally issued in 1988 on the coveted Stile Libero imprint, is without proximity – a Trojan horse embedding it sonic challenges beneath a deceptively accessible skin. Complex rhythms and repetitive patterns penetrate ethereal sonic space – sculpting a largely unexplored middle ground between the efforts of Midori Takada, Futuro Antico, Uakti, and the world of pop – a strange rethinking of late Minimalism as it has been rarely heard. With vast reference and touchstone – from the indigenous vocal traditions of Africa, to the instrumental metronomy of Steve Reich and Philip Glass, Brise D’Automne is one of the truly striking works of its era – engrossing, challenging, and remarkably beautiful.
