[CP 000.27 CD] CNUCE Computer Music
This was the 27th of the ca. 2003 "Proto Creel Pone" titles, covering a 1978 "Private" issue by the Pisa-based CNUCE (Centro Nazionale Universitario di Calcolo Elettronico) "Istituto Di Elaborazione Dell'Informazione" offering the center's historic research in Digitally-Synthesized sound. This was the spark that led to the discovery of so much early Italian Computer Music (later on there was the [CP 040-041-041.5 CD] Pietro Grossi set) and much like said there is a bizarre mix of lightning-speed circuit-board fritz cut with aternatingly faithful & bizarrely deconstructed readings of pieces by Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, Bartok, Webern, Scarlatti, and the like. Features several C.P. -adjacent figures such as Albert Mayr, Teresa Rampazzi, Tommaso Bolognesi, Alfonso Belfiore, and Grossi himself (whose own compositions tend to the former).
This replica edition comes as two discs housed in a six-panel booklet (with extended liners notes in both Italian & English in the inner "Gatefold") & offers a king's ransom in early low-bit crunch from the undisputed masters of the form.
