Limited Special Edition 2015 Reissue

Synthi Time” is perhaps one of the most suitable albums – within Umiliani’s incredibly vast discography – to fully appreciate the composing and experimental genius of the Maestro. For once away from the classic soundtracks that made him popular, this project veers away also from refined works of library music such as “Genti e paesi del mondo” (People and countries of the world) or “Problemi d’oggi” (Today’s issues), released under the moniker of Zalla. In this case, we like to imagine him absorbed in his Sound Work Shop studio, experimenting with synthesizers with the same enthusiasm of a newbie in search of the perfect sound. Without renouncing to pop(ular) elements, Umiliani seems almost to anticipate (or at least to be fully consistent with) the sound research that will characterize the careers of musicians such as Roedelius and Moebius in Germany.

As the same subtitle reveals, this was ‘a new way of making music’ through the use of the electronic synthesizer – this happening in 1971 – with occasional interventions by the spinet and the Hammond organ. And, with the exception of other little masterpieces such as “Il mondo dei Romani and Tra scienza e fantascienza”, the most ‘avant-garde’ Umiliani can be found here, among tracks such as “Synthi grottesco”, the outstanding “Synthetic Water”, “Synthi pianola” and “Synthi pastorale”, excellent examples of a Maestro exploring new sounds and the future of the music. Often forgotten and overlooked even by those self-proclaimed Umiliani lovers and fans, “Synthi Time” is actually one of his best works.
