Futuribile: The Life to Come

Futuribile: The Life to Come

Gianni Safred FW06253 / FX 6253

What did the future sound like in 1980? Futurible (meaning "futuristic" in Italian) is brought to you by Italian composer Gianni Safred and will take you both back in time and into the future. Safred uses Moog and Arp synthesizers that have now become commonplace in popular music.

These sounds are "suitable for space travels, space explorers, experiments, fantastic adventures, future enterprises, interplanetary stories, important achievements, industrial accomplishments of broad implication… modern scientific discoveries, new industrial events..." and also a Sunday afternoon on your living room couch.

Liner notes include brief song descriptions.
