H. Tical - Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music LP
Intervallo present a reissue of H. Tical's, aka Armando Sciascia, Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music, originally released in 1971. From the very first second, Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music is a difficult, icy release, embracing many cornerstones of what would become known as industrial music. These 16 sonic experiments are totally devoted to VCS3 synthesizers, which are the main architects of whirling escapes, white noise, and sonic landscapes in the mood of early Warp releases. Impact: Synthesized Sound And Music was originally released via Armando Sciascia's Vedette label in 1971, under the alias H. Tical. It's a really peculiar library music album, filled with incredibly contemporary sounds and atmospheres. Unlike Distortions by Blue Phantom (1971), whose super groovy and almost hard-prog tracks are all credited to H. Tical, this is a totally different sonic planet - and it's difficult to figure out what kind of images could be paired with such an extreme experiment, which is a one-of-a-kind effort in Sciascia's more traditional career as a composer. Moreover, the musical delirium is enhanced by the usual beauty of the titles, such as "Colluvium," "Metastasis," "Trigonos," "Intercosmic," "Rubidio," or "Laser," mixing Latin and English. This is a wonderful, alienating album made of "static" music, totally estranged from the idea of movement. A true desert island album, or better said, an abandoned planet album. Edition of 400.
