ANDRÉS SAENZ DE SICILIA21–9–18180gr vinyl, gatefold cover, edition of 300
The first LP to be released by Villa Lontana Records is 21-9-18 by Andrés Saenz de Sicilia. This record is a documentation of the artist’s performance in the car garage of Villa Lontana on 21 September 2018. A Roman necropolis of more than 160 tombs dating back to the first half of the 1st century BC was recently rediscovered under the concrete garage. The sounds for 21-9-18 were built upon a quadraphonic sound system, designed to respond to the physical environment of Villa Lontana’s garage, later rendered to stereo by the artist for the production of this record. The sounds produced consider different senses of weight, density, and time and include a text-sound collaboration between Andrés Saenz de Sicilia and Adam Green, co-founder and editor in chief of The Public Domain Review.
