The Die Schachtel label presents a work that points out a crucial turning point in the artistic life of the well-known Italian guitarist and composer Nicola Ratti. In 220 Tones, Nicola Ratti chooses to play instruments that cannot live without electric tension, such as the synthesizer, Farfisa organ, record player, electric guitar, reel-to-reel recorder and CRT television. The relationship between the material instruments and the non-material electrical flow brightens the instruments themselves and creates a deep energy as well as an intense atmosphere that streams through the whole piece. The perfect balance between all these features is proficiently combined with the mastery of the musician as well as the imagination of the composer, making the listener feel the charm and seduction of live performance much more than the usual recording dimension.
