FRANCO LEPRINO-INTEGRATI...DISINTEGRATI, LP, 1977, ITALY




Music that moves like smoke and incapacitates your defenses as only the finest smoke can, Integrati...
Disintegrati blows in on the same esoteric cosmic third stream of Italian 70's underground music that includes Franco Battiato, Pierrot Lunaire, Arturo Stalteri and Luciano Cilio (to cite four key examples) and which owes nothing to the sympho prog fixations of most of their Italian peers. Glazed systemic tides of watery acoustic guitar gently roil atop burbling pools of subtly modulating synth, occasionally graced by whispers of piano, flutes and crying infants. Leprino manages the rare feat of being simultaneously diaphanously delicate and eerily tense. My 5:00 AM acid comedown soundtrack du jour

ah, this is a great album! quite the undiscovered gem.
can you post any of the battiato produced affairs of the 70s, if you have em? i'm thinking fedgrigotti/lorenzini, lovisoni/messina or giusto pio? or even the roberto aglieri "ragapadani" album? i've been searching for those forever to no avail...

Terrific Leprino album! Thanks for this great smoked out classic! I love the atmosphere he creates on this album.

Does Franco Leprino have any other albums like this? Any one's you suggest?
