Title: Motore Immobile
Format: CD
Label: Cramps
Country: Italy
Price: $7.00
“2007 reissue; originally released in 1979. Giusto Pio is an associate ofBattiatos and Motore Immobile is his debut LP. On the first side, he uses a droning organ and moves from triad to triad, superimposing the next one briefly before moving on, occasionally expanding the sound with octave doubling and then just as quickly subtracting the lower tones. Intermittent humming and violin provide additional notes. On the second side, "Ananta," he uses a piano flourish to introduce each triad, landing on the tonic note each time.” - Cramps. "Gusto Pio was the chief arranger for Italian progressive pop icon Franco Battiato during the decade, and filled his striking albums with avant-garde details. In return, Battiato himself produced this collection of modern compositions, and his ear for the extraordinary laces these two long suits. A composition for organ and violin sets the tone, which is purely avant-garde composition, and features the voice of singer Martin Kleist. The effect is a powerful study of experimental narrative, while the later piece of the two, composed for piano, organ, and violin, features the composer on violin with Danilo Lorenzini and Michele Fedrigottis subtle accompaniment. This reissue should fill an important gap in 70s Italian music somewhere between progressive rock and avant-garde composition." - AllMusic.

Title: Motore Immobile
Format: LP
Label: Soave
Country: Italy
Price: $31.00
"Soave present the first vinyl reissue of Giusto Pios Motore Immobile, originally released in 1979. One of the most striking documents of Italys minimalist movement, Giusto Pios Motore Immobile is a masterwork with few equivalents. Produced by Franco Battiato in 1979, at the outset of a long and fruitful period of collaboration between the two composers, and issued by the legendary Cramps Records, its triumphs were met by silence, before falling from view. Emerging on vinyl for the first time since its original pressing, Motore Immobile now sits within a reappraisal of a large neglected body of efforts made by the Italian avant-garde during the second half of the 1970s and early 80s. It is singular, but not alone. It resonates within a collective world of shimmering sound, one familiar to fans of Battiato, Lino Capra Vaccina, Luciano Cilio, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Francesco Messina, and Raul Lovisoni. An exercise in elegant restraint - note and resonance held to the most implicit need. Everything between root and embellishment has been stripped away. A sublime organ drone, against interventions of deceptively simple structural complexity - executed by piano, violin, and voice. A sonic sculpture reaching heights which few have touched. A thing of beauty and an album as perfect as they come. The reemergence of Motore Immobile heralds what is unquestionably one of the most important reissues of 2017." - Soave.
