"An influential member of the Italian avant-garde, Roberto Cacciapaglia has spent the last four decades blurring the lines between classical and electronic music, developing a sound that has never been restricted by genre. A classically trained pianist and composer from Milan, Cacciapaglia first came to prominence in the early seventies as keyboardist for the king of experimental Italian pop, Franco Battiato. After recording his own debut LP, 1975's Sonanze in Milan, Cacciapaglia traveled to the Ohr/Cosmic Couriers studios in Cologne to mix the results under the watchful of eye of krautrock overlord Rolf-Kaiser Ulrich (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ash Ra Tempel). The resulting album was a mix of electronic (moog, synth) and classical instruments (guitar, oboe, trombone, clarinet) that was experimental in the cosmische sense, but with the musical chops and vision of a classically trained musician." 180 gram vinyl. Comes with a bonus CD of the album, includes15 bonus tracks recorded between 1972-74, but not released until 2000.
