coverLong Now (aka Pelissero Wine)” is a rare, limited edition promotional CD by Brian Eno, produced in 2002 to celebrate an Italian wine and offered to wine sellers. The wine is the Pelissero’s Long Now, so named in honour of the Long Now Foundation.

It features five unreleased tracks, in the same mood as his 2003 album, “January 07003: Bell Studies for the Clock of the Long Now“: these compositions experiment possible melodies and atmospheres for bell towers.

Relying on digital bell sounds (from FM synthesizers such as the Yamaha DX7), processed through various reverbs and delays, these compositions create strange and hypnotic soundscapes, between ambient and experimentation, with cycles of repetition ruled by mathematical laws.

The Azienda Agricola Pelissero is a family-run vine-growing estate located in the district of Treiso, in the heart of the zone of production of Barbaresco [in Piemonte, Italy].

Here we can hear excerpts from tracks 1 and 3.

    M’immagino i piazzisti del vino e gli osti che festona avranno fatto con questo CD. Nella migliore delle ipotesi l’avranno usato come spessore per mettere in bolla il bancone.
