Huge Tip! **Much-needed 2024 Reissue. Comes with bonus CD with acoustic version of the entire LP.** 1979's Sei Note in Logica is Italian experimental composer Roberto Cacciapaglia's second LP, a minimalist album that features one continual composition. Cacciapaglia follows in a tradition begun by other Italian modernists like Giusto Pio and Franco Battiatto but he also adds in phase-oriented playing that really opens things up a beautifully lyrical vibe that's probably most close to Terry Riley in its hypnotic swell, but which is carried off here through complicated variations of strings, woodwinds, electronics, marimba, and some especially great vocal passages "for four voices, computer, and orchestral ensemble," in the same vein as Fred Rzewski, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. Unlike anything else coming out of Italy at the time, Cacciapaglia (who worked for Italy's national Department of Phonology) was also quite advanced in his use of computer-based technology. A major influence on the likes of Jim O'Rourke and others of his ilk. Presented on 180-gram vinyl with a bonus CD containing an acoustic version of the entire album.
