ALFREDO TISOCCO-KATHARSIS, LP, 1975, ITALY





This glorious modality-spanning magnum opus from Opus Avantra mastermind Tisocco was composed for a dance company and effortlessly fuses facets of the Battiato/ Pierrot Lunaire/ Stalteri Italo-kosmiche trajectory to contemporary classical strategies, agressive bursts of Henry Cow-like dischord and stunningly poignant bouts of jaunty yet emotive motion suggestive of Lucio Battisti's humanity-laden Anima Latina in a way that mere words fail to do justice to. Miles beyond what he was getting up to in Opus Avantra, this is one of the cornerstone classics of the entire scene.

m@m-this is the first instance of someone requesting either VDO or one of our productions (Ohm) on Mutant Sounds, though I've been privately asked several times to do so. I've always felt that it would be too self aggrandizing to use Mutant Sounds to publicize my own work, as it could be construed as a crass move, so I've opted not to. Maybe I'm being daft to pass up such exposure for us, but I'd hate to appear to be using our service in a way that smacks of opportunism. Having said that, there is however a free download of our Saturation LP on our website, (a place where I can be freely opportunistic!), so if you happen to be looking for that you can find it:
Here Thanks for your interest!

Jeff-I *really* apppreciate your efforts to head off problems for us at the pass by consistently making these sorts of things known! You're a credit to our community here!
