An amazing sonic portrait of the modern
city – one created on the early 70s Italian scene, but lost to the shifting sands of time, due to its release as a sound library
-only album! We've heard Maria Teresa Luciani on a few other records of this nature – but this one may well be her greatest – music that's beyond categorization in the way it presents its subject – not really jazz or soundtrack styles at all, but also not some sort of too-modern
compositional idiom either. Instead, the whole thing seems to make some sort of honest, organic sense – as it presents differing aspects of the city, both residential and commercial, public and private – often with a sense of darkness in the immediate approach, but also with a current of hope at times too. Titles include "Public Gardens", "Modern
Residential Complex", "Supermarket", "Poor Neighborhoods", "Power Station", "Traffic", and "International Airport".
