Backwards proudly presents the reissue of a private Maurizio Bianchi vinyl LP, issued in a small edition of 300 copies in 1983 and titled "Das Testament". M.B. is an Italian pioneer of noise music, born near Milan. Bianchi began to produce music in 1979, and since 1980 has used electronic equipment with the avowed goal "to produce technological sounds and in such a way to work on complete realising of the modern decadence". Now remastered, for this release MB plays electronics, rhythms, neutronic effects.
The two suites of "DAS TESTAMENT" were recorded in 1982 and can be included among the most extreme and uncompromising MB recordings: Bianchi used a mixture of synthesizer parts and tape loops to create an incredibly oppressive, bleak, dark music/soundscapes, that inspires today artists from worldwide noise set. Hearing this classic recording now, you can glimpse the future insights of hundred artists in the fields of noise, industrial and experimental music.In few words, this is an essential release for all lovers of the darker and disturbing side of the electronic/noise movements.
First 100 copies come with a bonus vinyl 7" (on white wax) with two exclusive and unreleased tracks: "Defected Piano pt.1" and "Defected Piano pt.2".
