Vita e lavoro nell'acqua
Been listening to this gorgeous gold-framed Italian record of underwater film music. This is from 1969 or so. The title translates as "Life and Work in the Water." Don't know much about Franco Potenza, but I love records like this and how they conjure up a whole imaginary world just with simple instruments and ancient electronic effects. This one is eerie and strangely therapuetic, sort of in the vein of Eric Towren's Zenith, which is another great subaquatic record. And I was just looking at this great Pinterest page (Jonny Trunk's?) of rare underwater library records. Check out the soundclip or dive in here.
