Medieval French + Traditional Chinese Pipa Music On 180g Vinyl LP!
An Aural Experience Impossible To Describe!


A unique collection of French Medieval and Chinese melodies, recorded in the Medieval (and only) church in the small village of Nevian in Southern France. The blend of Medieval Organetto, Chinese Pipa and Fiddle, supported by various percussion instruments is an aural experience impossible to describe. The uncanny juxtaposition of the two music cultures is something MA Recordings invite you to experience, pretty sure you've never heard anything like it before.

The Japanese-made MDC lacquers were expertly cut on the fly by Bernie Grundman in the spring of 2016 on his Scully lathe equipped with Westrex cutting head. All cutting amplifiers utilized custom made vacuum vacuum tube circuitry. Todd Garfinlke of MA brought his modified KORG MR2000 with all the master files on board and the signal went via the shortest path to the lathe through a passive attenuator box custom built for the studio. The freshly cut lacquers were then immediately Fedexed to Master Craft in New Jersey where Desmond plated them, creating both Metal Masters and Mothers. Records were expertly pressed at Record Industry in Holland.

The traditionally made, high quality cover was printed in Taiwan. The LP itself is packaged in MA Recordings' custom made inner-sleeves, made in Japan, exclusively for MA.

"This perfectly recorded admixture of French Medieval, traditional Chinese and post-postmodern avant-garde music is surely one of producer-engineer Todd Garfinkle's finest releases, on both musical and sonic levels. The contrapuntal interplay of Chinese pipa (lute), organetto, medieval fiddle and percussion parlays contrasting tones, textures and unexpected shifts in harmony into marvelous musical moments without precedent or equal. When I listen to this unusual recording, I inhabit the musicians' space and feel I'm sitting in the room among them. This recording is, for now at least, the finest combination of music, art and sound I know of." - Herb Reichert, Stereophile, Records to Die For 2018
