Futuro Antico – S.T.
An obscure gem originally released in 1980 on tape only, Futuro Antico contains the hypnotic debut sessions of Walter Maioli (Aktuala) and Ricardo Sinigaglia’s “Italian cross-culture ethnic meets electronic project.” Analog warm sound, the album features a perfect mix of drone synth, percussion, and flutes (found in oriental countries) that gives listeners “the idea to fly on a spaceship towards some exotic sites.” Equipment used include electric organ, Fender keyboard, Moog, EMS synth, Revox reel-to-reel, ney flute, bullroarer, water jar, bones, and more… Highly recommended for fans of Terry Riley and Don Cherry’s astonishing live Köln jam!
