- La Mutazione by Giancarlo Toniutti
This morning I woke up and the first thing that came into my head was that there was a reissue due of some old record on Broken Flag that I'd never heard and sounded right up my street. “...akin to Klaus Schulze, Cluster, Tangerine Dream and Conrad Schnitzler filtered through the lens of MB, Whitehouse, Nurse With Wound, and The New Blockaders”. Sounds like the stuff dreams are made of for your humble scribe, right? It’d been bothering me all morning but has now been resolved, as I’ve discovered it in my list of forthcoming reviews... Phew... Shit like that worries me. Perhaps I should stop obsessing over black plastic circles for a while.
Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label is responsible for this welcome reissue. Originally unleashed unto the world thirty years ago no less. Giancarlo Toniutti’s work has distinct parallels with that of fellow Italian artist Maurizio Bianchi - Toniutti starting off in the noise/ experimental/ industrial cassette underground just after Bianchi in the early 80’s. Sonically ‘La Mutazione’ creates equally bleak and foreboding soundworlds across two side-long, dark and haunting pieces of visionary electronic music. But where Bianchi’s work explores the darkest recesses of the human psyche, ‘La Mutazione’ has its dials pointed at cosmic, reaching into the darkest corners of deep space. The rough/ low-fidelity/ basement primitive production only adding to its appeal. Glad to be acquainted with this record... Come to Papa.
