Iacoucci, Gerardo - Industria N. 1 LP

Article number: INT011
Quantity: 1
Intervallo presents a reissue of Gerardo Iacoucci's Industria N. 1, originally released in 1972. At the beginning of the '70s, in Italy, the revolutionary surge of 1968 was beginning to turn into something grimmer (and definitely not linked to left-wing ideology) but the concept of "factory" still had a key role in the economic and social life of the country. It was not just an alienating workplace, where you would often spent your whole life, but also the place where demands were made and political struggles took place. Therefore, a feasible imaginary soundtrack for the factory was the daily noise of machines, tools, hammers: an idea that, years later, would be embraced by dozens of industrial bands all over the world. But, in 1972, that reality was documented by Iacoucci, who recorded factory machines and then added special effects. Industria N. 1, divided in "Fabbrica" on the A side and "Impianti Meccanici" on the B side, is an amazing work mixing field recordings and experimental music, proving how you can combine political commitment, art, avant-garde, and pioneering noise music in a brave record. Edition of 300.
