Meditazione Elettroniche

Three Italian artists and their interesting electronic music.
Franco Battiato has had a long career as an experimental music performer and popular singer. Of course it's the former we're going to look at here, with music from his first three solo albums. The first two are more in the vein of experimental pop, while the third explores extended instrumental territory in a way familiar to listeners of the program.

Arturo Stalteri of Pierrot Lunaire is a keyboardist and composer who was influenced by avant-garde music and minimalism in particular. Here I play two pieces from the group's second album along with two solo Stalteri pieces that show some of his range.

Franco Falsini of Sensations' Fix has done some great work with guitars, loops, and keyboards, operating in musical territory not entirely different from someone like Manuel Göttsching. Here is a selection of music from Sensations' Fix as well as a track from Falsini's obscure solo album.

Enjoying all the Italian music today. Thank goodness for On Demand--now I can listen to past programs. Really enjoyed the Jean Michel Jarre program.

Glad you liked it! On Demand is a lifesaver for the late shows, for sure.
