    label: warp

    32 page photo book printed full colour on 200gsm Fedrigoni Milk uncoated paper, with contrast pages on Sappi Magno silk coated paper, bound in hard cover blue canvas with debossed gold foil block on front and back cover. Fedrigoni gold end papers and inner sleeve, housing 10 vinyl record. Hand-numbered edition of 500. Warp wunderkind Lorenzo Senni releases the original soundtrack for short film The Challenge. The release exposes Lorenzo Senni as a musical chameleon - blending the sound into the body of the film, making the music a collaborative character rather than an accompaniment. The producer may be best known for his trance explorations, but this really does expose him as an artist who can wring the emotion from his music. The soundtrack, a collaboration with Francesco Fantini, was recorded with a full orchestra and is both uplifting and joyous with a hint of melancholia. The release comes as a very limited edition deluxe 32 page photo book with 10 vinyl designed by Davide Mosconi. Listen to an excerpt. The Challenge, directed by Yuri Ancarani, is a anthropological documentary observing the curious hobbies of the rich in the desert. Ranging from bidding for birds to Sunday-driving with exotic cats in SUVs around the desert, its a playful remark on a rarely seen subject.
