State-of-the-art Fidelity!

"Salvatore Maiore was born in Sassari in 1965, and studied double bass at the Cagliari conservatory. He has played with numerous Italian configurations and worked with visiting musicians including Lee Konitz, Billy Cobham, Joseph Jarman, Steve Grossman, Cedar Walton, Oliver Lake, and David Liebman. His discography includes recordings with Glauco Venier, Klaus Gesing, Al DiMeola and many others." - Gube Music

In Certaldo, heavenly place of the most real Tuscany, there is Il Castello, an hotel managed
by a dear friend and great drummer with whom Salvatore and I had the pleasure
to work on several occasions. From the meeting between Alfred Kramer and an equally
excellent character, Giulio Cesare Ricci, that all of you fonè followers know very well,
was conceived a special project that saw Salvatore and me happily involved. Behind
this project there is the idea to record a musical event with the most possible fidelity
without external “additions”. What Giulio Cesare Ricci is doing since decades is
known to you all, and it is an admirable research work for the most absolute fidelity
reproduction of a sound event.

To this end, as well as using his extraordinary passion
and competence with microphones and recording equipment of esoteric value, “Signoricci”
recorded this event in a unique place, the medieval cellar of the Il Castello
hotel. Try to capture a sound event as truthful as possible is very charming idea.
In this historical time, when technology just does not seem to settle as a service to
music but wants to become even its author, try to bring an event to its original purity,
totally avoiding any type of editing, and addition of reverbs or any other effect,
is a brave venture and against the tide, not without risk but certainly fascinating.
Salvatore and I accepted the challenge with great pleasure, what you hear here is the
faithful reproduction of our two days meeting, with NO EDITING, NO CUT, NO MIXING,

The goal of Giulio Cesare Ricci matched with our idea to bring back the music as much
as possible to its dimension of “unique and unrepeatable event.”
I must confess that when listening to the master that “Signoricci” sent us, we were in
truth at first slightly displaced, accustomed as we are even us, acoustic musicians, to
an array of “doping” which now constitutes an integral part and is taken for granted
in every recording.

But this listening is essentially different, and you will surely be able to feel its precious
uniqueness. For our part, Salvatore and I wanted to be on the same spirit and
record our compositions in a totally “live” atmosphere.
What you feel is a concerto for each and every one of you. The title of this project,
“Alma” in addition to being the acronym of our family names, wants to be an omen
that the soul may once again be the beating heart of the music ...
Soul has hovered for these two days of music, we heard it with the same intensity with
which we could hear the chirping of birds (that you as well can hear in the recording).
My heartfelt thanks to Alfred and Giulio Cesare for having involved us in this ambitious
project, and thanks to all of

The story of fonè
In the context of classical and jazz music market, fonè proposes three decades of recordings using advanced techniques, aimed at the recovery of the original musical atmospheres.
Each new recording is the result of a passionate encounter between art and the art of execution and aims to recreate and reproduce the same spirit with which the works of the past have been performed. One basic feature that makes the difference between fonè and others, is the recording of musical works in natural places and original, constant production that leads to choose from time to time historically more space? Suitable for: church, theater, villa, living room ...
All this is done by retrieving a simple incision that does not do violence to the music: all the equipment is in high definition. Using pairs of valves Neumann microphones in the years 1947 and 1949 (U47, U48 and M49) using techniques very natural timbre bimicrofoniche field effect. These microphones have an important story: they are the microphones used to record the Beatles at Abbey Road Studio and RCA for the "Living Stereo."
No use is made of electronic manipulation of the signal, nor any artificial correction that if they make a sound easier to carve, it is true that distort so unacceptable. With this method you get to transfer the music information on the standard analog for the production of virgin vinyl 180g &  200g
fonè uses for the standard analog Nagra 4S, Studer C37 and J37 and Ampex ATR 102, the standard for digital, in collaboration with Philips the DSD (Direct Stream Digital) technology that has opened the doors to the SACD. For all subsequent stages of processing and control, in which it must be a playback of the sound reproduction systems are used very sophisticated.
After the pressing demands of the enthusiast market and after a long series of investigations to ensure the best possible support, the virgin vinyl 180/200 grams, fonè now makes available its most prestigious titles in the LP format. 
strong opposition to current trends in the multinational market, tending to offer a product that is increasingly homogenized and devoid of content. 
Implementation is of the highest quality and is dedicated to those who appreciate the pursuit of perfection in the field of sound reproduction, to collectors, to the true connoisseur and expert of things beautiful.
