Gold vinyl 2xLP limited to 50 copies, few copies in stock. Joining their growing catalog of unearthed Italian gems, we’re overjoyed to announce Archeo Recordings’ expanded reissued of Paolo Modugno’s brilliant long lost album Brise D'Automne. A member of the legendary multi-media performance collective O.A.S.I., a singular composer, and multi-instrumentalist, Paolo Modugno’s work stands tall within the incredible canon of recordings to emerge in the hands of the 1980’s Italian experimental avant-garde - a hybrid of countless musical traditions from across the globe, joined with experimental electroacoustic practice, and the deep ambiences of New Age.

Brise D'Automne - originally issued in 1988 on the coveted Stile Libero imprint, is a work without proximity - a Trojan horse embedding it sonic challenges beneath a deceptively accessible skin. Across its sides, 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 rises as one of the truly striking works of its era - engrossing, challenging, and remarkably beautiful. A long sought after gem, returning to vinyl for the first time since its original issue, Archeo Recordings’ has pulled out the stops - presenting a hand-numbered limited edition of 500, accompanying the original LP with a bonus 12”, containing 2 tracks previously unreleased on vinyl. Not to be missed. Grab it fast, before it’s gone again for good.
