F.P. & The Doubling Riders - Doublings & Silences (LP)
The Doubling Riders started as the mail-art project of Francesco Paladino and then grew to include regular collaborators Riccardo Sinigaglia and Pier Luigi Andreoni. Their first album together Doublings & Silences is a compendium of avant ideas from three inimitable sound thinkers and an A-list of collaborators including Vox Populi! and Alain Neffe. The pieces range from spoken word and electronics to avant pop and widescreen minimalism. Although most of the works are quite serious in tone, the whole project is freewheeling and experimental, and overall one gets the sense that the artists were having fun exploring an uninhibited range of ideas with good friends. The cover features a beautiful surrealist painting by Armodio.
