I Futurbili LP
11 track replica LP
Egisto Macchi (1928-1992) has long existed in the shadow of his friend and famous collaborator Ennio Morricone. As Morricone melded pop idioms and western scores, Macchi too melded classicism, the avant garde and early electronic music. Aside from his frequent collaborations with Morricone (in the astounding ‘Il Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’) Macchi was a busy film (LSD Inferno, Bandidos, The Assassination Of Trotsky) and TV (E.S.P, many commercials with Mario Bava) composer in late 1960s and 1970s Italy and France. Macchi also cut a number of highly desirable library LPs for the Gemelli, Sermi and other Italian labels in the 1970s. ‘I Futuribili’ is one of the greatest and most sought after of those LPs, a stunning and powerful hybrid of haunting orchestral arrangements, jarring avant tones and dense electronic atmospheres (the later played by composer and ‘Il Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’ bandmate Walter Branchi).
