Pierrot Lunaire


Label: Sony

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

Out of stock

Digitally remastered for the first time at 192 khz and 24 bit. From the original master tapes. Along with the likes of Franco Battiato, Opus Avantra and Piccho dal Pozzo, Pierrot Lunaire were one of the artists that contributed to the small, but artistically significant, avant progressive scene of Italy in the mid-70s.
One of the most important Italian electronic progressive, formed in Rome in the early '70s by Arturo Stalteri and Gaio Chiocchio, this album features the enchanting voice of the soprano Jacqueline Darby English. Gudrun is more like avant-garde, free thought, stream of consciousness, melodic madness. It is completely bizarre music with some similarities to Opus Avantra but not comparable to anything really. Conventions go out the window as we are treated to all manner of instruments and free-form vocals in these mini trips. It is held together by the dodging presence of tasteful melodies which are not obvious but they are there. Plenty of them. This is experimentation at its finest but unlike some trippy albums which are just dissonant to an annoying level, Gudrun is enjoyable and beautiful.
A must for fans of Italian prog, avant-garde, and for daring listeners of all stripes.
