Artist: ALESSANDRONI, ALESSANDRO
Title: Angoscia
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Originally released in 1975 by Italian label Octopus Records, a label devoted to thematic libraries, Angoscia is one of the best works by Italian composer Alessandro Alessandroni. Famous for his film-score work -- often with such masters as Piero Umiliani and Ennio Morricone, with whom he collaborated to create some truly immortal soundtracks (especially those written for Sergio Leone) -- Alessandroni also developed a parallel career as an author of library music, freely crossing and touching every music genre. Alone, or together with friends and pupils like Rino de Filippi (aka Gisteri) and Giuliano Sorgini (aka Raskovich), he always managed to push the boundaries of experimentation, but with great taste and personality, never giving up on the majestic orchestrations characteristic of his art. Angoscia, released when Alessandroni was at his creative peak, features 12 tracks revolving around the albums core theme of angoscia, or anguish; the pieces move through dismay, desperation, uncertainty, pride, resignation, frustration, desolation, agony, prostration, obsession, and, finally, fear. Thirty minutes of anguish have never seemed so enticing and nuanced... Edition of 300 copies; first-ever reissue; remastered sound." - Intervallo.

Artist: H. TICAL
Title: Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Intervallo present a reissue of H. Ticals, aka Armando Sciascia, Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music, originally released in 1971. From the very first second, Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music is a difficult, icy release, embracing many cornerstones of what would become known as industrial music. These 16 sonic experiments are totally devoted to VCS3 synthesizers, which are the main architects of whirling escapes, white noise, and sonic landscapes in the mood of early Warp releases. Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music was originally released via Armando Sciascias Vedette label in 1971, under the alias H. Tical. Its a really peculiar library music album, filled with incredibly contemporary sounds and atmospheres. Unlike Distortions by Blue Phantom (1971), whose super groovy and almost hard-prog tracks are all credited to H. Tical, this is a totally different sonic planet - and its difficult to figure out what kind of images could be paired with such an extreme experiment, which is a one-of-a-kind effort in Sciascias more traditional career as a composer. Moreover, the musical delirium is enhanced by the usual beauty of the titles, such as "Colluvium", "Metastasis", "Trigonos", "Intercosmic", "Rubidio", or "Laser", mixing Latin and English. This is a wonderful, alienating album made of "static" music, totally estranged from the idea of movement. A true desert island album, or better said, an abandoned planet album. Edition of 400." - Intervallo.

Artist: IACOUCCI, GERARDO
Title: Simbolismo Psichedelico
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Gerardo Iacoucci attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston and, later, founded the Scuola Popolare di Musica di Testaccio in Rome, but he is mainly remembered as an excellent jazz pianist. During his long career, the musician born in Veroli, Italy, explored -- with great dedication and talent -- various different music genres and recorded many libraries, many of which qualify as small masterpieces. One of the most famous is Simbolismo Psichedelico, originally released in 1970 by the small Deneb label (home of other heavyweights such as Alessandro Alessandroni, Amedeo Tommasi, Stefano Torossi, and Daniela Casa), and also pressed in France by the St Germain des Prés label with the title Symbolisme Psychédélique. These 11 tracks tirelessly explore the boundaries of an "expressive urge," which is the signature style of a master like Iacoucci. The disturbing atmospheres of "Fantasmi Lunari," the avant-garde drive of "Ipnosi" and "Inibizioni" (two short sketches at the end of the album), and the free mood of "Psicopatologia" are just a few among the best and most essential moments of this gem. There are no limits or fears in Simbolismo Psichedelico -- this is an incredible, and truly hallucinatory, sensory experience. Edition of 300 copies; first-ever reissue; remastered sound." - Intervallo.

Title: La Natura E LUomo
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Intervallo present a reissue of La Natura E LUomo, originally released in 1973. Intervallos third reissue in the incredible series of nature-themed libraries originally released in the first half of the 70s by Cardium, Chic, Nereide, Musical, Rhombus, Spring, and Weekend labels. Real hardcore collector items which gave birth to a small cult during the last four decades. La Natura E LUomo, (Italian for "nature and mankind"), first came out in 1973; despite being part of the same series as Biologia Marina (1973) and Ittiologia (1973) (part of Intervallos reissue series), it is actually a different affair, in which the avant-garde urge partly leaves room for sweeter, acoustic atmospheres. But there are also amazing examples of ambient experimentations such as "Protozoi" or "Venus", both featured in two versions. The main characters of this release are pretty much the same ones we met in the other volumes: Alessandro Alessandroni, Franco Tamponi, and Amedeo Tommasi. La Natura E LUomo also introduces two new names: Marco Di Marco, author of the tracks with a more definite easy listening mood, is a pianist and a jazz composer from Bologna, while the alias Kema hides Alessandronis wife, the amazingly talented Giulia De Muittis, who was an equally formidable force. She and her husband are responsible for the most enticing tracks of the album: "Bassa Marea", "Pescatori", and "Venus". Edition of 400." - Intervallo.
