GIANPAOLO CHITI & SERGIO MONTORI-RISOLUZIONE SONORE, LP, 197?, ITALY




One of the most profoundly ridiculous library releases ever, and yet one with a strange allure. To hear this is to marvel at just what the hell exactly they assumed these pieces were intended to soundtrack, as the sonics herein are utterly retarded. Gracelessly flat-footed and rinky-dink keyboard themes set to bontempi organ cha-cha/bossa nova beat presets, it's a sound that for the right set of ironic ears and under the right set of conditions (say...in a party mix with Tom Recchion and Tipsy tracks) would have a definite amusement value. Well...I for one am amused, anyway. Your milage may vary.

this goes beyond novelty! I know I'm in the minority, but this is exactly the sort of record that pulls me in. much more psychedelic and insane than the countless albums that are TRYING to be that.
thank you so much for sharing. and if you have any other outsider/questionable items you're being shy about, by all means post them!

It sounds so simple and so cleverly

Gian Paolo Chiti is one of Italy's most important living composers and pianists. He was the director of the composition department of the Santa Cecilia Conservatory in Rome for years and years, only retiring last year. He has written music for the concert hall, for television, for film and other venues.

Somebody didn't "get it". Too bad for somebody...
