This is the debut full-length release by The Seasons -- a collaborative project by an international assemblage of accomplished musicians in the realm of jazz, electronic, and indie-rock. Members include Trenton label-head Sam Rouanet (aka Reynold), DJ/producer/Duplex 100 member Phil Stumpf, double bassist James Sindatry, Sam Rouanet's father Jacques Rouanet, a well-known French jazz piano player who toured the world several times with Argentinean singer/songwriter Alberto Cortez, and finally, cornet player Rob Mazurek, the mind behind Chicago Underground and The Exploding Star Orchestra, who has played with Sam Prekop, Isotope 217, Tortoise, Pan American and Stereolab. Rouanet & Stumpf were working on their project Duplex 100, running the famous "Minimal Dancin" nights at the Nouveau Casino in Paris, when they decided to start another band to act as a counterbalance to the very digital, dancefloor-serving material they were doing at the time. Their aim: no boundaries. The core: beautiful music. James Sindatry joined them. Sam's father did some features. While living in Chicago, Sam had played in AUFM (Alien Unknown Funk Mob) and had met Rob Mazurek, who was more than happy to contribute as well. Recorded over innumerable sessions, Undone merges beautiful acoustic instruments with high-tech electronics, allowing the individual talents of the musicians to shimmer -- the chords vibrating, the beats earth-shaking. Sam Rouanet (guitar, programming), Phil Stumpf (Polysix, programming), James Sindatry (double bass, flute, programming), Jacques Rouanet (Rhodes), and Rob Mazurek (cornet).
