Musci / Venosta - Messages and Portraits CD

Excellent works by Robert Musci and Giovanni Venosta, two Italian composers. Using samplers, synths, tapes and more, they combine their music with ethnic recordings.
Their use of recorded ethnic voices and rhythms combined with their own work makes for a cross between Jon Hassell & Holger Czukay. This is 75 minutes of music from their two early ReR lp titles Water Messages On Desert Sand and Urban And Tribal Portraits. For me, Water Messages especially was their best work.

“In the late 80s these globetrotting Milanese composers joined forces to produce two acclaimed & prescient records made in equal parts from their own performances and ethnic field recordings, a little in the manner of Eno/Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts-but rather more evolved.”-Chris Cutler
