7" VINYL · 150 COPIES
SEPTEMBER 2014

MASTERED BY GIUSEPPE IELASI

ARTWORK BY OPORA

Granny 13 opens with Nicola Ratti's 'Odd Doubt'. With the use of a modular system and tape loops, a broken rhythm is obtained by contrasting single LFO sound signals and processed tapes. On side B, Giovanni Lami's 'Johnny Leech' is made with a small bunch of equipment, a chaotic hand-made synth (cacophonator) and a memoryman, working mainly on static electricity and leakage current on the synth, which was used without any kind of power supply.

Reviews

THE WIRE — (U.K.)

Two Italian musicians share a split single of glitch fun and everyone goes some happy.

TEXTURA — (CA)

Some releases qualify as art objects as much as musical collections… a release where the abstract nature of the musical content matches its visual presentation.

VITAL WEEKLY — (NL)

Johnny Leech is a nice piece of chaotic lo-fi sound, which is put forward through methods of improvisation… Ratti seems to have worked out his music as a composition, which is very nice.
