Tra Scienza E Fantascienza (New LP)Moggi
Release Date: 2015
Catalog #: WRWTFWW003
"Repressed! First vinyl reissue of a highly-sought after electronic abstract future jazz release by Italian soundtrack and library music composer Piero Umiliani, originally released on Umiliani's label Omicron in 1980 under the pseudonym Moggi. Umiliani's releases are generally expensive and hard to find, and Tra Scienza e Fantascienza is no exception. Umiliani was a master, gifted with a never-ending passion for music, and an experimental innovator who manipulated synthesizers with ease, forging a sound that could be reductively termed avant-garde. Timeless atmospheres and alien hypnotic sonorities that are modern and charmingly retro; minimal and complex; arranged with precision. Umiliani was way ahead of his time; hear, for instance, "Happy Accompaniment": it sounds like a 2015 minimal house track."
