Title: Images for Diana Baylon
Format: LP
Label: Die Schachtel
Country: Italy
Price: $29.00
"The long and mesmerizing single piece of analog electronic music that develops over the two sides of Images for Diana Baylon (1972), the latest Die Schachtel "Silver Series" LP is a soundscape composed by Teresa Rampazzi for the artist Diana Baylons 1972 exhibition at the modern art gallery Il Fiore in Florence, Italy. Diana Baylon (1920-2013), a friend of Rampazzis, was a cross-disciplinary artist who transformed various materials (ceramics, glass, metal, paper, paintings, graphics, jewelry) into figurative and - later in the 60s - abstract and programmatic art objects. In the summer of 1969 she appeared - along with Alberto Burri, Pablo Picasso, Jean Dubuffet and Lucio Fontana - at the Festival dei Due Mondi di Spoleto exhibition "Maitres Et Jeunes Daujourdhui". For the 1972 Florence exhibition, Teresa Rampazzi realized this long "soundtrack" (in her words) to be played in loop. Sounds were made with the analog equipment she used at the time. "The inner space of the exhibition" she wrote, "is made of sound, for the whole duration of the exhibition. The work is composed by a series of sound events, with both informal and aleatory features, in a continuous flux, and there is no planned predetermination in any of the various sections. This choice has been made for the sound space to adjust to the sculptors plastic and loose images." Immagini per Diana Baylon was in fact the third time Teresa Rampazzi realized music for an exhibition. The first was also the very first experimental composition that Rampazzi and Ennio Chiggio composed in 1965, a sound collage for the opening of an exhibition of the Gruppo Enne at the International Biennale dArte in Venice. The second soundscape piece, "Environ" (1970), was realized for the presentation of a 360 degree round modular couch in foamed resin designed by Chiggio, presented at a furniture shop in Padova in 1970. The piece is featured on the Die Schachtel Musica Endoscopica LP by Teresa Rampazzi released in 2009 (DS 009LP). Immagini per Diana Baylon is the eighth LP release in the Die Schachtel "Silver Series" dedicated to the pioneers of early Italian electronic music. Limited deluxe vinyl LP edition. Silver printed cover with silver-foil print, with a red inner sleeve and booklet. Edition of 450." - Die Schachtel.

"Following the acclaimed CD edition released by Die Schachtel in 2008, heres the long-awaited limited "silver" LP edition of Teresa Rampazzis incredible early electronic music. It differs from the CD edition with the inclusion of "Metamorfosi," a previously-unreleased and magnificent drone piece. Teresa Rampazzi, a seminal yet very little-known female Italian composer/musician, founded the NPS - Nuove Proposte Sonore -- an experimental music collective formed in the late-60s. She was also one of the founders and main figures of the Centro di Sonologia Computazionale, a computer music research center active from the early-70s at the University of Padua. It would be easy to see electronic composer Rampazzi as Italys equivalent of Daphne Oram or Delia Derbyshire, those long-neglected pioneers behind the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. But zoomed in closer, though, a more intriguing picture begins to emerge: Musica Endoscopica is in fact an immersive journey into a futurist-ic/early digital electronic music with dense, long drone pieces made of complex textures that explore the computers capacity to produce endless variations of source material, at times anticipating some of the electro-feel to emerge in the years to follow. A welcome return of Die Schachtels celebrated "metallic" series vinyl LP editions, dedicated to early electronic Italian composers. Housed in a deluxe silver cover with silver foil design with a custom inner sleeve and a 4-page booklet in English and Italian." -Die Schachtel.
