The Belgian electronic music label Alfa Matrix (Front 242, Unter Null, Ayria, ...) handles the worldwide distribution of the RECOIL Blu-ray 'A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST'. RECOIL is the project of Alan Wilder, formerly of DEPECHE MODE. This first edition is limited to just 1000 copies worldwide and will be presented in a deluxe DVD-sized 6 panel digi-pack with reinforced slipcase, containing a 170gm 16-page booklet packed with information and photo manipulations by Ákos Szénási.
These first 1000 copies will be individually hand-stamped/numbered and the disc will also feature extra promotional films and live projections. All store on-line orders will be dispatched with an exclusive code to receive downloadable extras such as a pdf art booklet with extra pages, a soundtrack sampler, Recoil 'live' photographs and project wallpapers.
It is a Blu-ray only format release in order to preserve the best image quality possible. If you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray yet, now is the time to do so!
"A Strange Hour" was presented during 2010/2011 in 52 cities across the world as part of the "Selected Events" tour to celebrate 25 years of the RECOIL project. The Blu-ray features the second and last full show of 2010, held in Budapest at the beautiful newly-renovated Szikra venue.
The performance was filmed using the latest high-definition technology in order to capture the event in its full glory. For this (with the help of the local promoters), the team from Umatik was recruited, headed up by director Attila ('Atus') Herkó, and in a similar way to the stage projections, RECOIL collaborated remotely on the editing – Alan Wilder gave feedback to rough edits which Atus sent to him whilst Paul Kendall and Alan simultaneously worked on the surround sound mix. Attila's film is nothing less than stunning and offers a captivating and exhilarating document of "A Strange Hour".
