Runtime: 23'47''

«Italian musician David Fungi returns to test tube with an old and curious recording. 'Lost Lands' was recorded nearly 10 years ago in an unusual place for doing so: a cave. Valganna, in Italy, has a series of caves well known for its acoustics, but David chose to record there not only because of that but also because a cave is a mystical an mythological place, believed to be a passage to unknown words, or unknown universes... Jules Verne, the science fiction pioneer, dreamed of it and wrote about it.

Essentially, 'Lost Lands' is an experimental piece which travels between a handful of different 'ambiances', from drone to calm and meditative based sequences, and near its end you can even feel a short sprout of soft clicks and cuts. This an excellent piece of great experimental music.» - Pedro Leitão

Reviews:

«You’ve probably not heard of Italian sound artist David Fungi, as he has only had one release on test tube and five on Sine3pm. But that will change now. The netlabel test tube presents Fungi’s sophomore effort on their label, Lost Lands, an album he recorded in a cave. Lost Lands begins glitchy and then abruptly moves into ambient and then slips into some wonderful repeating drones.  My guess, due to Fungi’s field recording experience, is that the sounds of water dripping in the recording are actually from the cave environment. Lost Lands is a wonderful piece which like all good works led me to download the rest of his discography at Sine3pm
