When the New York composer Vito Ricci produced a handful of experimental pieces in the 1980s, he probably would not have expected that a popular reissue label would bear the name of one of his albums: Music From Memory. This is his first album in 30 years, released via the new label Intelligent Instruments. Ricci has composed a lot over the decades, but this LP is completely composed on a Commodore Amiga; using the Music Mouse - developed by avant garde Composer Laurie Spiegel. The album turns out to be a timeless, fresh perspective of ambient music. With its new-age drones, hypnotic percussive loops: the different tracks do not sound unusual given the instrumentation and restriction. Between Ricardo's distant guitar and the alienated vocals of his wife Lisa Vachon: it is detailed, fascinating and perfect music conjured from obsolete music technology to tremendous effect.
