Music From Memory
On the leading edge of NYC’s underground music scene, Vito Ricci produced only a handful of self released cassettes and one LP between 1983-1985 with most of his work being recorded for experimental theatre and performance art pieces.
Taking their label name from Vito Ricci’s only LP, Music From Memory brings together a compilation of works by one of the unsung heroes of New York’s downtown music scene.
Drawing comparisons with New York’s downtown No-wave scene Vito’s compositions blend his unique use of intricate percussion with a wide sphere of musical influences to create a world of hypnotising ambient, meditative minimal-synth through to dubbed out electronic funk and even left-field boogie. With most of Vito Ricci’s music remaining previously unreleased, Music From Memory’s compilation “I Was Crossing A Bridge” unveils Vito Ricci’s unique and visionary take on electronic music.
