Genre: Library/Soundtracks

Out of stock

Restocked, reduced price. A wonderful blend of organic rhythms and weird electronic sounds from groundbreaking sound library artist Egisto Macchi – served up here on a record that is posibly on of his best. Truly a compelling work, with a range of styles from minimalist soundtrack music, to fairly dramatic grooves with squeaky sounds, plonking string instruments, illustrative percussion, whistling and howling.  A walk through the city and it's parks by night with your own breath and footsteps, birds singing, hissing insects and neon lights. Citta Notte’s heady melange of cosmopolitan folk tropes, abstract sonic gestures, distressed and scattering percussion, beatific melodies and ominous VCS3 drones exists in a sublime universe all of its own.

Atmospheric, smokey, urbane and sophisticated “Citta Notte” is a seamless and stunningly timeless jewel in the expanding cosmology of rediscovering Library/Production music. Haunting, profound and hypnotic, one of the rarest Library LPs is no doubt also one of the most beautiful and rewarding.
