First time ever on CD for these early tapes by one of the most important figures in noise/electronic history, Maurizio Bianchi. These two discs were originally issued on tape in 1981 and have been bootlegged and cut into oblivion since then; this is the first time they've been made available digitally and fully uncut. Technology 1 has two long 25 min+ songs, both in a similar vein and showing MB taking a more subtle melodic approach than a lot of his early works; analogue synth and organ combine to make some truly morose but ultimately uplifting music, whilst all the time reminded of the "technology" slant via laser gun blasts, hisses and bleeps. Technology 2 is a little more caustic in its approach: there are no moments of playful organ or robotic beeps, this is a far more barren journey. It brings to mind very much a sense of alienation, like being marooned on some strange, distant planet. Almost like the nigthmare to "Technology 1"s day dream.
I'm incredibly chuffed to be putting out the music of such a legendary figure and very pleased with how this set came together. This is the first in a series of reissues of MB's early work on CD. *Please note that Technology 1 can also be found (in truncated form) of Vinyl On Demand's amazing LP boxset MB Archives. I highly recommend seeking it out.
