Artist: RICCI, VITO
Title: A Symphony For Amiga
Format: LP
Label: Intelligent Instruments
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Intelligent Instruments, a new imprint co-founded by Gary Abugan of Invisible City Editions, will launch with Vito Riccis Symphony For Amiga full-length.
Riccis prescient, weird music was brought to light last year with I Was Crossing A Bridge, an 18-track collection of his 80s productions curated by Music From Memory. That Amsterdam reissue label has been well-received among digger types, and RAs Aaron Coultate said "its hard to imagine a package that better sums up the [Music From Memorys] purpose than I Was Crossing A Bridge."
Hes fallen in with another crew of avid record collectors for his latest release, namely Abugan and his friend Sanna Almajedi. Almajedi and Abugan are currently involved in an art show centered around the 80s home computer, the Commodore Amiga. Juno Plus reports the upcoming New York exhibition focuses on the Amigas "history and usage in music." The show is called Intelligent Instruments, and the music on Symphony For Amiga was commissioned specifically for the event. Ricci made the six-track LP using Laurie Spiegels Music Mouse program, which was coded in 1985 for Amiga Music." - Resident Advisor.

Artist: RICCI, VITO
Title: I Was Crossing A Bridge
Format: Double LP
Label: Music From Memory
Country: France
Price: $30.00
"On the leading edge of NYCs underground music scene, Vito Ricci produced only a handful of self-released cassettes and one LP between 1983 and 1985, with most of his work recorded for experimental theater and performance art pieces. Taking their label name from Riccis only LP, Music From Memory brings together a compilation of works by one of the unsung heroes of New Yorks downtown music scene. Starting out as a percussionist, Riccis early musical journey led him to improvised and experimental jazz; working alongside such luminary musicians as Rashied Ali, Byard Lancaster, Peter Zummo, and Yousef Yancey. He quickly became involved in the avant-garde scene with spoken word performances, film scores for independent movies, and even performances with punk bands at venues such as CBGBs and the Mudd Club, and his compositions drew on all of these influences while channeling them through his experiments with synthesizers and drum computers. Drawing comparisons with New Yorks downtown no-wave scene, Vitos compositions blend his unique use of intricate percussion with a wide sphere of musical influences to create a world of hypnotizing ambient, meditative minimal-synth, dubbed-out electronic funk, and even left-field boogie. With most of Vito Riccis music remaining previously unreleased, the compilation I Was Crossing A Bridge unveils Riccis unique and visionary take on electronic music." - Music From Memory.
