Maurizio Bianchi

The Plain Truth

Label: Officina Fonografica Italiana

Format: CD

In stock


Presented in an elegant digipack featuring a new artwork based on the original cover pictures and fully approved by the author, "The Plain Truth" continues the series of reissues dedicated to the undisputed master of Italian Noise and Experimental Music. Officina Fonografica Italiana is particularly proud to introduce this title because it is one of the best entries in Maurizio Bianchi's ever-growing discography. Originally released in the U.K. as a 500 copies limited edition LP by Broken Flag in 1983, the album is a strong but very accessible work where Bianchi pays his homage to the German Cosmic Couriers of the Seventies. "Dedicated to all the redeemed people", "The Plain Truth" offers two long tracks of layered synthesized sounds treated with vintage effects that depart from his previous more aggressive works and is one of his earliest experiments in desolate and dark electronics. The title track is led by elaborate electronic textures that float above an intense soundscape, it has an absolute claustrophobic feeling, and is as creepy as mysterious. The rest of the album consists of more transcendent ghostly droning sequences with long and immersive synth lines. This "visceral" emotive music of the highest quality will appeal to fans of Tangerine Dream, Thomas Koner, Klaus Schulze, Lull, Cranioclast, etc.
