Intervallo present a reissue from Amedeo Tommasi's Rotary Records label, Farlocco's Tecnologia (1974). The niche occupied by libraries in the history of Italian music is full of amazing stories, such as Rotary Record's, which is actually one of the most interesting and peculiar. The label, created and led by renewed composer Amedeo Tommasi, released seven albums in just one year - between 1973 and 1974 - of material ranging from futuristic experimentations to classic and jazz (the latter being one of the biggest passions of Tommasi). He wasn't just the boss, he also played piano and electronic instruments in all the records he released. He also took care of all the brilliant artwork (the original ones can easily be found online) and of pressing duties. The first three volumes of the series were released in 300 copies each, the other four in a humble press of 100 each: numbers that show how rare these records are nowadays, and how scarce their circulation was at the time. Tecnologia by Farlocco (an alias of the great Stefano Torossi, meaning "fake" in Italian) is the second of the two Intervallo reissues dedicated to Rotary's experimental vein, the first being Narassa's Tensione Dinamica (INTER 005LP). This album is one of the first instances of electronic libraries: a perfect example of how, sometimes, Italian libraries were a stunningly fertile ground for experimentation and foretaste of future sounds. It's not a blasphemy to say that the three versions of "Superpotenza", opening the album, are techno tracks before techno was even born. Or that the heavy mood of "Silicosi" (in two different versions), "Geosonda" and "Pressione" are prehistoric examples of industrial music. But there are, also, the experimentations of "Lavoro Veloce" (once again, in two very different versions) with it's pure sonic sci-fi, and the electro-glitch of "Virus" and "Biodegenerazione". Probably the future was not what we meant it to be, but a part of it can be found in the grooves of this album.
