EGISTO MACCHI :: VOIX LP

drome Lần cập nhật cuối: 8 Tháng Tám, 2022

In the 70′s, the Italian public television RAI used to broadcast disturbing paranoiac dramas, weird documentaries on the bottom of the sea and indigestible so-called “educational” movies. Obviously, all that stuff needed some music. Or “sonorizzazioni” (soundtracks), as they were called. These soundtracks were handled by shady characters, on the border between avant-garde classical, electronic space age and a healthy Italian pop touch. Some names are familiar: Ennio Morricone, for example. Or the mythological Piero Umiliani, too.
But the biggest of all was Egisto Macchi. His Voix, a ghostly fresco of lunar vocals and abstract phonemes, is one of the masterpieces of the Italian “library music”; what these compositions were created for we do not know: a documentary about the underworld of the psyche, perhaps? The fact is that, for years, they have been the grail of the 70′s spaghetti-sound, rare as well as expensive, but now that the Roundtable has reprinted them, we can all tremble – and not just geeks researchers of “italothrilling”, like Demdike Stare
