Eleven years in the making, Fazio has produced a very different album unlike any in his history. An art / rock / ambient sensibility seen through the eyes of an artist with a reverence as well as a lightheartedness for the historical importance of our shared musical experiences. Through the past, fondly.
Fazio, known foremost for his beloved orchestramaxfieldparrish ambient project, is a veteran of the downtown NYC experimental performance scene of the 1980’s and college radio alt rock scene of the 1990’s has been part of hundreds of recordings, independent film soundtracks and modern dance recital music.
The Vast Apart is Fazio’s 35th recording on his Faith Strange imprint since 1992. Limited CD pressing in gatefold card sleeve | unlimited DL
Exquisitely recorded and mastered in 24bit / 96k high fidelity.
