That classic combination of piano and subdued electronics is given a workout on Bruno Sanfilippo's pensive 'Lost and Found'. Field recordings lend an extra layer of nostalgia, carrying the listener further away into an emotional dreamland. Definitely cinematic in scope, this is one for late and calm nights.
8/10 Jamie Staff review, 31 October 2017
Bruno Sanfilippo has wowed a few of us here at the Towers in the past and he looks set to continue doing so with his latest collection of sun-dappled piano textures, on his own ad21 label. Lost & Found is a collection culled from re-discovered tracks and gems unearthed from hidden corners. Including a track restored from the hard drive of a studio computer.
Gorgeous ambient piano radiating warmth and light, calling to mind a less frosty Harold Budd or a less studious Eno -- that’s certainly how ‘Intropiano’ sounds to my ears, at least. ‘Peter’ was Sanfilippo’s contribution to the Ambientblog 10th Anniversary set from 2015, and it features the distant sounds of children happily at play on a backdrop of gauzy synth and floaty minimal piano. ‘Piano Texture Found’ mixes a lil static with some woozy piano melodies; ‘Solitario’ is a nice long piece with crackling synthetic sounds building upon the textural qualities of an aching, dripping, old piano sounding like it’s been haunted by Vangelis. Lovely stuff.
