Digging Giallo Disco visuals and sounds – is this a new genre?

Giallo Disco Records. Alessandro Parisi - La Porta Ermetica

Giallo Disco Records are proud to present Alessandro Parisi

Alessandro Parisi’s alchemical elecronic saga began in 2006. Born in Pordenone, travelling through Venice, Rome and now located in Treviso, Alessandro’s unique retro-futurist soundtrack re-imaginings are Italian through and through. Armed only with a TR707, Roland JX3P and an old Teac 244 Tape Recorder his music is organic, magickal and scary as hell…

La Porta Ermetica EP (and accompanying limited edition CD album) is a journey through mistical realms and Italian fog. All analogue hardware compositions mixed with seemingly EVP recordings of ghosts. Of course, one of these ghosts is the Queen of Italian Coldwave Mushy (Mannequin Records) whose ritualistic collaboration “Centrum in Trigono Centri” spills like ectoplasm from the ears of the possessed. Our special guest remixer for this release is the legendary Brassica (Dissident / Civil Music / Cyberdance / Nocturnes) which sees his cosmified rework of “Hesperius Draco” as a soundtrack to Timberland attending a voodoo ritual in an abandoned Detroit warehouse.

The limited CD contains bonus materials and an exclusive extended remix of Azot et Ignis, by Giallo Disco’s own Vercetti Technicolor, taking the original into uncharted cinematic territory.

Ghost Box Study Series Reviewed

Ghost Box Study Series

The Ghost Box Study Series is a set of ten 7 inch singles featuring artist collaborations and each with a ‘study’ theme. I am very glad there is someone out there who would take the time to review the Ghost Box Study Series in an appropriate level of detail. Here is an example…

Study Series One

“The first single is a collaboration between Belbury Poly and Moon Wiring Club and comes under the general heading of Youth and Recreation (each single has its own thematic title). Things get off to a fairly funky start with the A side The Young People. Stevie Wonderish clavichord and disjointed beats beats are overlaid with more typically Ghost Boxy synth melodies in warm, sunfilled analogue tones. A haunted middle section has echoing zither shivers (‘terror zings’ as they’re referred to on the Radiophonic Workshop Out of This World effects LP), ratcheting scrapes like sticks dragged along railings and other murmurations. All of which suggests the approach of the young people with the strangely ‘whitewashed faces’ of which the voiceover speaks. It all ends with ominous, booming synth chords: they’re here, they’re at the door. The B-side, Portals and Parallels, has more beats and bass from the Moon Wiring end of the spectrum. The repeated pattern of a spiralling Belbury theme tune creates zooming false coloured photo title graphics in the mind, suggestive of some supernatural action series. Distorted, half-comprehensible voices can be heard leaking through from some other place. The middle-section shifts into an urgent, John Barry-esque style, which you could imagine being hammered out on a cimbalom (the sound of cold war spy thrillers). An odd, bumbling folk melody in the middle could be the signature of a friendly spirit sidekick, manifesting in order to aid our occult detective in his fight against malevolent forces.”

Instead of using reverb effects or a music studio, Audio Zero and Wikidrummers had drummer Julien Audigier play the same drum pattern in different environments to capture natural echoes and decay patterns. Nice analogue sounds and nice digital editing.

“Welcome to my grey world of sinister public information films, dusty archival sounds, Cold War Britain and weeping analogue synths. Not necessarily in that order. All music, stings and sounds created entirely from scratch, using vintage analogue synths, varispeed tape bouncing, reversing, field recording and self-sampling. I do not use pre-made samples, sounds or loops. In stereo. Mostly”.
