While some space themed music sounds like it has come from another planet, "Musica Elettronica" sounds like it's from another dimension! These sparse and hypnotic compositions may seem overtly simplistic but they have an unnerving quality that keeps the listener on edge. Probably the best example of this would be "Provision" which is essentially a high pitched tone with an uneven heartbeat underneath it; that something so simple could be so compelling is a credit to Grano's skills. It's even more impressive when you consider that this album was created in 1973. I'm not sure why all the track titles have photographic references but it just adds another layer of mystery to a truly strange and unique album. I believe I originally found this at Marsellus Wallace's Crate Favorites. I'd be interested to know what you make of this record so feel free to leave a message.

Dear Master of Ecstatic Frolicking:
I am quite familiar with different forms of electronic music since the 70's - but THIS ONE is a true SHOCKER. I am familiar with different types of electronic music since the 70's - but I never ever heard such UNSETTLING/DISTURBING/TIMELESS/SPACELESS "MESSAGES" from another DIMENSION. Listening once to this TRANS-DIMENSIONAL "MUSIC"...and you'll never get rid of the haunting feeling it generates inside your nervous sytem.Actually R. Grano walks a way in electronic music
nobody - even Klaus Schulze after X [1978]- feared to tread...namely exploring OTHER DIMENSIONS ; not mounting
yet another "spacey" irrelevant theme. It seems to me from your fine selections that the spirit of electronic
music to SEARCH FOR MEANING (R.Wagner's credo) has left us entirely after the 70's.
Once again I commend YOU for YOUR GREAT TASTE IN MUSIC !
