Proto Mundi is Antoine Fafard’s album project released in October, 2017. It is a concept album which includes three extended tracks, a 32-page booklet with a shot story plus a full bonus album.
The music on Proto Mundi features Simon Phillips on drums, Jerry Goodman on violin and Gary Husband on lead syntheziser.
Simon Phillips’ tracks were recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, while most of Gary Husband’s performance was captured at Eastcote Studios.
Proto Mundi is accompanied by a bonus album entitled Doomsday Vault which features 11 remixed songs from Antoine’s first three CDs, plus four previously unreleased pieces – three of which feature brand new performance from violinist Jerry Goodman, and a fourth featuring Chad Wackerman on drums.

Making Of Playlist
Jazz-Fusion Composer, Bass & Guitar player
Any musician will tell you – the mixing process is a crucial part in music production. Davide Sgualdini is a master of the sonic world and can make a huge difference to any project, whichever the musical style is. He continuously dedicates careful attention to the music he works on in order to elevate it to its highest potential. Since I began to work with Davide, my music has never sounded better. I can confidently say that there are two periods in my musical life before and after Studio LaMorte!

The day Antoine Fafard discovered Davide Sgualdini and introduced his work to me was a revelation. What a day of joy that was. Like Ken Scott did for the Mahavishnu Orchestra album “Birds Of Fire”, the approach and sonic vision he brought to the mixing of my drum kit (on the album “Sphere” by Antoine) was entirely stellar, refreshingly exciting and had a real unique character that was instantly, MAJORLY arousing to my ears and spirit. I was astounded. At that point he became the new standard for me – an engineer with whom I look forward to working on many projects together. His expertise and relentless, tireless dedication to whatever he’s working on is only the “icing on the cake” element to his vastly superior abilities as an engineer/producer. Davide’ a rare one. And an equally beautiful guy to work with. I cannot endorse his all around excellence highly enough!
Thank you Davide sir!
