** special replicaLimited Edition in white vinyl** Much-needed reissue of this Italian cosmic/electronic masterpieve, extremely obscure but deeply inventive and fascinating album issued at the time in a handfull of copies containing insert and poster, all faithfully reproduced here in a spectacoular re-edition limited to 200 copies (numbered) in black vinyl extra track included 180 grams vinyl. Electronic prog "supergroup" formed by Mino Di Martino, Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale privately released in 1978 but recorded a couple of years before contains keyboard music in a similar vein as many german cosmic music LP's or some of Franco Battiato's experiments, with the organ as main instrument, only accompanied in some parts by Terra's voice. Curious, enigmatic, fractured and gorgeous, this albums features dense electronic soundscapes, including inspired analog synth excursions, classical music tendencies and off course massive "cerebral" avant gardist fantasies. "Live Pistoia" features loving spacey electronics, emotionally expressive and technically complex. The composition is punctuated by discreet, ethereal female voices. “Phasing” is a graceful, lyrical composition for voices and "dreamlike" synth chords. “Senza Titolo” features contemplative choirs, adjusted by electronic effects. A haunting, semi-acoustic song. “Tastiera solo” provides analog synth textures for a rather “fantomatic” symphonic “trip”.


It gives gorgeously “creepy” tones, notably taken from classical music pieces. “Improvvisazione” is a tasteful lyrical synth composition including bizarre vocalisations. “Tracce” is a sort of strange and “hypnotic” electronic exercice for repetitive patterns and crystalline pulses. Deeply recommended for fans of  kosmische electronics.
