4 stars Blissed out, sacred, luminous semi acoustic / electronic "trip" from Italy "underground". Released in 1980 it can almost figure as a classic, revealing mysterious extended "drones", classical arrengements and a great variety of "exotic", non west instruments. "Eco Raga" is a sonic acoustic meditation for buzzing sitar and chanting flutes lines. The atmosphere is very floating and pleasant. "Piano synt" is surfing on "new agey" territories but succes to create a gloriously spacious and environmental ambience with "kosmisch" synth waves, beautiful modern classical / jazzy piano sequences ( in a sense it reminds me Tim Blake's peaceful, lysergic analog synth excursions). The final theme "Suoni Naturali" starts as a weird immersion into a "jungle" of unusual, "shamanic" sounds, it carries on an ethereal, "voodoo" like incantation with ethnic, ritual percussions altered by electronic treatments and nocturnal flute lines. A very strong effort with a lof of innovative experimentations, I can only regret the new agey influences on some titles.
