[Angel's Kiss Records] - Marco Persichetti - Il Tempo, La Memoria E Lei

Angel's Kiss Records - ak-lp 77701 - Marco Persichetti - Il Tempo, La Memoria E Lei

I found a copy of this rarity, and was lucky to get in touch with the composer in the process. He was cool to write a few lines about the album, so here's Marco Persichetti. Thank you very much!


This was my first album, and I interpreted very freely and with real curiosity my task (they gave me only few instructions, something like “Write a music that must be not too loud, and rather continuous in mood”).

Considering that it was a typical low-budget library record, it was a true luxury to have obtained (after little negotiation with the music editor) a “real” harpsichord (on “Passacaglia” and “E ancora mare”) and a “real” harp on “Un nuovo giorno”. Many friends provided “free” solo parts, such reducing the production costs, as my brother Gianluca who played all the six different guitar parts in “Un racconto di Luca” and many beautiful solos in the other tunes, or Daniela Troiani who played the two flutes-canon in “Canone 884”.

It's quite fun, today, to look at some tecnological devices that represented, at the time of the record, the state-of-the-art of tecnology, (we were in 1984!) and now are pure archaeology, as for example the analogic sequencer employed besides the three trumpets in “Girotondo per Francesca”, while the “futuristic” Yamaha DX7 seemed to open new worlds (you can hear it in “Il tempo, la memoria e lei”). I played piano, Fender Rhodes and the other keyboards, including an odd little keyboard designated only to imitate the sound of the electric bass (another “archaeological” device).

The whole record was made into a lilliput- music studio, packed into a car-box, and owned by Francesco “Cicci” Santucci, an excellent jazz trumpet player, who was the music engineer and played the three-trumpet theme of “Girotondo per Francesca”.
