Insetti


Buzz buzz. This album is about bugs. Very timely because it's been a nice sunny day today after the longest winter ever, and I can just feel the flora and fauna murmuring. No bees yet but soon they will be flying all over. I'm inspired by these amazing bee related photos over on even*cleveland.




Anyway the clinical looking pink vinyl oddity above is an Italian record from the 70s. It's a TV/film soundtrack full of wobbly avant garde abstractions conjuring up wasps and bees and insect-borne sickness (there is actually a song called "Malaria"). One of a series of addictive color-coded LPs devoted to marine life and biology and landscape and the like (another one can be found here). Some lovely electronic "beehive" incidentals.

  4. Well, there are a few I'm trying to track down. One is called Panorami ed Effetti and the other is Scienza e Biologia. They are all very similar. Interestingly, though, they all seem to be released on different labels even though they look exactly the same.

  5. This different label/same design mystery has always intrigued me. There's that orange one too, but I guess that's more bossa stuff. Nice score on Insetti, BTW!

  6. Different label each time but apparently, they're all composed by the same gang (Alessandro Alessandroni, Amedeo Tommasi,...)
    If anyone finds anything, please keep us posted (here)!

  11. I know this is almost four years now. Funny thing, it is actually a nice sunny day today after the longest winter ever here in Quebec.
    It would be "timely" indeed to hear those buzz buzz if you can.
    Thanks!
