Futuro Antico (1980)

For the first time on vinyl this obscure gem of the italian project Futuro Antico, released just on tape in 1980, this record contains the hypnotic session of Walter Maioli (Aktuala) and Riccardo Sinigaglia. Analog and warm sounds, a perfect mix of drone synth and ancient flutes (found in oriental countries) gives you the idea to fly on a spaceship towards some exotic sites. This records terribly remember the astonishing live Köln jam of Terry Riley and Don Cherry, the comparison fits! Limited edition of 300 copies, this reissue maintains the first tape artwork + info and photos in the innerfolder.



Dai Primitivi all'Elettronica (1980)

An outstanding raga-like drone LP with a distinctive cosmic vibe, Futuro Antico was born for a brief, blissed moment of communal cross-cultural levitation, as a collaboration between the two italian Walter Maioli (Aktuala), Riccardo Sinigaglia (who'd go on to form Recommended Records recording artists The Doubling Riders) and Gabin Dabirè (from Burkina Faso). The synthesis between ancient, ethnic and analog electronic music is just perfect, the minimalist repetition with slight changes gives associations of a slow growth; cyclic repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey trough ancient, primitive cultures and modern electronic soundscapes.
Originally released in 1980, the sound is completly analog and warm, this 300 copies reissue maintain the first tape artwork + info and photos. Had this album been released in 1973, a label like Bla-Bla would have released this album (Aktuala actually recorded for that label, just like Franco Battiato). Certainly the finest thing I ever heard from 1980. For the adventurous listener, this comes highly recommended!



Isole del Suono (1980)

Previously unreleased, high quality recordings from the italian experimental trio Futuro Antico. The sound experience it's a mysterious synergy between the elements of Nature, a magical encounter between different souls but with elective affinity. Walter Maioli’s ancient and ethnic wind instruments are the breath of the Air, Riccardo Sinigaglia’s electronic spirit produces liquid sequences of the Water, while Dabiré’s african percussions materialize the voice and rhythms of the Earth. The result is a total creative Fire, a foamed core of perceptions and multiple sensory universes of distant memory. The dialogue between archaic and futuristic already investigated in the historic Dai Primitivi all’Elettronica sees here another bright episode in this unreleased live, the music recorded on tapes directly by the mixing console is the result of the memorable performance held in Bologna at the festival Isole Del Suono on 17 July 1980. The secret harmony between sounds is complete but at the same time brings out the expressive specificity of the three individual personality: the subtlety of reiterate sonic textures; waterfalls of minimalist piano; Sufi atmospheres supported by sequence of organs that reinterpret the frequencies of harmoniums lost, the solemn gait of an African balaphone absorbed in electronic vortices endless...these are some of the coordinates of a musical and cultural poetics that after years continues to wonder for his source of formal purity and multiplicity of stimuli
