Boomkat Product Review:
Recipient of multiple reissues on Finders Keepers and Dead-Cert Home Ents in recent years, Swiss maestro Bruno Spoerri’s prog synth disco ‘masterpiece’ Voice of Taurus is subject to deluxe reissue via Geneva’s We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records, offering a cosmic spooj of curdled space scapes and wobbly grooves for the naughtiest disco rimmers and fans of Bernard Fevre aka Black Devil’s Disco Club.
“Surrounded with a formidable family of legendary synthesizers, primitive modulators, and audio gear transformed and customized à la Spoerri, armed with an extraordinary talent for improvisation, and deeply inspired by the likes of Wendy Carlos, Pierre Schaeffer, and the then freshly released Close Encounter of the Third Kind, Bruno Spoerri envisioned VOICE OF TAURUS as "electronic pop conceived using an experimental and jazz approach". The result is an out-of-this-world sonic adventure where early techno sounds blend with synth-based sci-fi soundtrack vibes, krautrock explorations, and retro-futuristic disco madness - it’s unique, it’s catchy, it’s cosmic, it’s meditative - it’s a must have for all record collectors of the galaxy…welcome to Planet Spoerri!
Still very active recording, touring and collaborating (Julian Sartorius, Franz Treichler of Young Gods, Marco Repetto of Grauzone, Roger Girod…), Bruno Spoerri is a multiple award-winning Swiss music icon, whose career started in the 1950s and covers jazz, electronic music, film and tv work, and everything in between. Improvisational maestro and synthesizer mega-connoisseur, Mr. Spoerri has influenced an entire generation of producers and musicians - hell, even Jay-Z sampled him!”
