Boomkat Product Review:
Seriously off-road Italian library obscurity from Rome, 1970, retrieved and reissued by Italy's Intervallo alongside their reissue of Alessandroni's 'Angoscia'.
In contrast to Alessandroni's side or even most of the recent flood of library reissues, 'Simbolismo Psichedelico' deals in some truly wigged-out avant themes, sounding like the your man Iacoucci was dabbling in strong acid at the time, or at least knew "psychedelia" from first-hand experience, rather than attempting to recreate it from anecdotes and adjectives.
As the label put it, these tracks "tirelessly explore the boundaries of an "expressive urge"", following his jazz-taught instincts to a hallucinatory mental state that's totally intoxicating on the listener's end.
They range from passages of pitching owl calls to cascading, echoic keys thru totally alien electronics redolent of the Radiophonic workshop output, and a handful of immense percussive attacks, all much more free and febrile than your usual library slab, but recorded with the same attention to spatial detail and sonic fidelity.
What a mad one?! Well recommended!
