Sylvain Chauveau’s ‘Simple’ LP is reissued today in a remastered, first ever vinyl issue. Sylvain was making elegant post-classical compositions years ahead of almost everyone in the now-burgeoning post-classical scene, getting there before much heralded current peers like Max Richter, Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, Dustin O’Halloran, or Goldmund. His third album, the gorgeously minimal ‘Un Autre Décembre’ (recorded in 2001) was our second release and played a huge role in helping define 130701’s identity. Ten years later (2012), we released ‘Simple’, a CD selection of Sylvain’s works for cinema, composed between 1998-2010 – a diverse, yet fully cohesive collection of out-of-print, rare, and unreleased tracks. Now reissued in a remastered, first-ever vinyl edition, Chauveau’s work here sounds as fresh and relevant today as it did back then and we believe that its author is long overdue some recognition and a reappraisal of his role in helping prepare the ground for today’s scene.
