Piero Umiliani (under his mysterious Moggi moniker) weighs in with another AWOL gem within the Sound Work Shop vaults, 1979’s stressful library composition “Tensione“.
Here, among the fragmented cognitive ruins maestro Umiliani goes resolutely left field and off track with an intra-personal exploration of the disturbed inner psyche within the human condition. Distressed electro beacons are unleashed as de-tuned predatory Carpenter-esque synth patterns come to the fore (check Clavinet Suspence for primal audio blastings to a lost unnamed 80’s slasher movie).
Followers of the esoteric and strange can finally dig in via Black Sweat Records‘ lavishly created reissue featuring original artwork, master tape Laquer cutting and Umiliani‘s personal autobiographical notes on the project.
