Title: The Ann Steel Album
Format: LP
Label: Half Machine
Country: UK
Price: $20.00
Repressed. "Roberto Cacciapaglia is an Italian electronic composer whos made albums using every possible permutation of the same six notes, right up to modern classical, with The Ann Steel Album as the weird anomaly. Made with an American model who moved to Italy to make it big in fashion, Roberto took her languid, Laurie Anderson-esque voice and created a detached futurist popstar. The odd sound of these European futurist pop songs make it sound like the machines are breathing, creating a weird organic/electronic rhythm section. It has to be heard to be believed. With fans ranging from Geologist and Avey Tare from Animal Collective, Deerhunters Bradford Cox and Banjo or Freakout/Walls mainman Alessio Natalizia. The first time this album has been on vinyl since its initial small pressing in the 70s." -Half Machine.

Title: Generazioni del Cielo
Format: Double LP/CD
Label: Mirumir
Country: Russian Federation
Price: $38.00
“Originally released in 1986, Italian pianist and composer Roberto Cacciapaglias Generazioni del Cielo is a contemporary musical work in the form of oratory; it is born from a development of matured musical language across polyvalent experiences, ranging from classical to pop composition. The subject originates from the will to tell an unusual story, a story without events but with real emotions, drawing from contemporary literature and sacred texts. In the production, the music, which was classically conceived, is projected into an environment of technological media, where the ancient and the modern interact. Presented on double LP with CD included. Remastered at Glance Studio.” - Mirumir.

Unlike anything else coming out of Italy at the time, Cacciapaglia (who worked for Italys national Department of Phonology) is also quite advanced in his use of computer-based technology.

Title: Sonanze
Format: LP/CD
Label: Mirumir
Country: Russian Federation
Price: $27.00
"An influential member of the Italian avant-garde, Roberto Cacciapaglia has spent the last four decades blurring the lines between classical and electronic music, developing a sound that has never been restricted by genre. A classically trained pianist and composer from Milan, Cacciapaglia first came to prominence in the early seventies as keyboardist for the king of experimental Italian pop, Franco Battiato. After recording his own debut LP, 1975s Sonanze in Milan, Cacciapaglia traveled to the Ohr/Cosmic Couriers studios in Cologne to mix the results under the watchful of eye of krautrock overlord Rolf-Kaiser Ulrich (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Ash Ra Tempel). The resulting album was a mix of electronic (moog, synth) and classical instruments (guitar, oboe, trombone, clarinet) that was experimental in the cosmische sense, but with the musical chops and vision of a classically trained musician. 180 gram vinyl. Comes with a bonus CD of the album, includes15 bonus tracks recorded between 1972-74, but not released until 2000." - Mirumir.

Title: The Ann Steel Album

Mirumir presents The Ann Steel Album, a reissue of an album of Roberto Cacciapaglia compositions sung by Ann Steel, originally released in 1979 as a self-titled album credited to Steel. "So who are Roberto Cacciapaglia and Ann Steel? The former is an Italian musician who specialized in electronic composition after starting his career in the early 1970s on the edges of the krautrock scene. The latter is a Michigan-bred singer who spun into Cacciapaglias orbit during a trip to Italy in the 1970s to do some modeling. The Ann Steel Album is the one-off result of that happy accident, a record so full of joy that its a surprise they werent tempted to go back for another bite once it was in the can. But its a credit to both of them that they knew when to stop, perhaps feeling that the sugary pop perfection of these recordings could never be replicated. Theres a clunky charm to many of the synth sounds, most of which influenced bands like Stereolab and the perennially underrated Pram in future years; Steel even has a strain to her voice thats reminiscent of Pram singer Rosie Cuckston" --Pitchfork. This reissue is presented on LP with CD included, and features two bonus tracks and an insert with lyrics. Remastered at Glance Studio.

Title: Sonanze
Format: LP
Label: Wah Wah
Country: Spain
Price: $29.00
"Roberto Cacciapaglia had already gathered attention for his excellent work at the keyboards on Franco Battiatos legendary second LP Pollution before joining forces with Krautrock mastermind Rolf Ulrich Kaiser for the release of his 1975 masterpiece Sonanze. Cacciapaglia self-produced the album in Milan for the Cosmic Couriers label, and it certainly brings echoes of some cosmiche kraut experiments like those of Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream, yet retaining a unique personality of its own. Actually its the feel given by Cacciapaglias mixture of classical sense compositions (he was trained in Milans Giuseppe Verdi conservatory) with adventurous experimentalism (he worked for the RAIs phonology research team and also at the CNR in Pisa) what makes the sound of Sonanze so unique. According to the Scented Gardens of the Mind book, good musical references might be Terry Riley, Franco Battiato (Sulle corde di Aries), Klaus Schulze (Cyborg) and William Scheller (Lux Aeterna). In a 500 copies only limited edition featuring an insert with liner notes." -Wah Wah.
