Obscure then, Obscure now that is a Obscure Masterpiece even Today
An obscure record with a very curious story that can be found on a Amazon review:
Automat was a project headed by the Italian musicians from a pop band called Bottega dell’arte, Romano Musumarra, Claudio Gizzi (composers) and Mario Maggi (programmer of sounds in a Memory Controlled Synthesizer MCS70). They made an electronic album back in 1978, a curious mix of drone music, bizarre stuff ‘ a la Pierre Henry ‘machine dance’ and electro-pop in Kraftwerk or Jean Michel Jarre vein. The first side is totally taken by the long Automat suite by Claudio Gizzi, while the B side contains three shorter tracks by Musumarra: the track ‘droid’ was very famous in Brazil because was used like theme of a TV telenews, “Jornal da Globo” (Globo TV) in early 80’s. Every sounds on Automat were generated by the MCS70, a monophonic synth built by Luciano Torani, who intended to use the album as the demo disc for the MCS70 (all the tracks were programmed on an analog sequencer). Unfortunately, Only one MCS70 synthesizer was produced.
This is for sure some incredible tones from 1978 that Muuuzic is digging out for you to listen. Its obscure, yet so nice for the mind. All of the 6 masterpieces is so fantastic made.
Droid at 16:44 is Incredible Magnefiq
All of these songs are incredible for me, but especially Droid which you can hear from 16:44 in this video is for sure one of the more interesting ones. There is tons of italo disco mixes of that song that is also fantastic made.
This is obscure, but it also takes you back in time to 1978. A time when birth of electronic music was just beginning. History!
