Product Notes

Bruno Pronsato returns with A Face Wasted On The Theatre, written and produced in collaboration with the Israeli musician, Yonatan Levi. Pronsato and Levi have been collaborating intermittently since 2014, with Levi adding bass guitar to tracks on both Pronsato's US Drag LP (2017) and 2016's NDF EP, Cruel Is The Color (FOOM 008EP, 2015), as well as contrabass on a track on Pronsato's Archangel LP from 2014 (FOOM 005EP). Written in the afternoons and between two different studios in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg, the album spans eight tracks, with Yonatan Levi playing bass guitar on six of them. It also features guest appearances by downtown composer/producer Peter Gordon and Israeli saxophonist Yonatan Yudkowitz on "Bring Me A Kill". Bruno Pronsato (aka Steven Ford) has been subverting expectations within techno and house's upper echelons since 2003. A former speed-metal drummer with a serious appreciation for 12-tone composers, he moved to Berlin to focus on music full-time in 2005 and captured the attention of the electronic music world with his redefining Why Can't We Be Like Us album from 2008 (HELLO 010CD). This was followed up with Lovers Do in 2011 (SONG 006CD/LP), dubbed a "massive and striking statement" by Pitchfork. After a six year-hiatus, he released the rejuvenated US Drag LP in June 2017, with Resident Advisor commenting that the album was "a fresh perspective on Bruno Pronsato that keeps intact the best aspects of his music, proving that Ford's singular project still has a lot left to give." Pronsato is also a member of Half Hawaii with Panorama Bar resident and ex-Pantytec member, Sammy Dee - they release mainly on Perlon. His 2010 collaboration with Sergio Giorgini (of Benoit & Sergio) as NDF was hailed as one of the "tracks of the decade so far" by Pitchfork in 2015. Pronsato was also a member of the electronic supergroup, Narod Niki alongside Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Daniel Bell, Akufen, Luciano, Dimbiman, etc. And he also co-produced Ellen Allien's 2013 LP, LiSm (BPC 264CD/LP). Yonatan Levi, aka L.A. Teen, is a 31-year-old musician born in Tel-Aviv, Israel. With a deep background in classical music, in 2006 he moved to New York City and immersed himself in the New York jazz world. He has recorded a quartet album alongside Willie Jones III, Aaron Goldberg, and Ofer Ganor and is featured in Ofer Ganor's album Miles Away, starring the legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb.
