Gigi (Marco Di Paolo and Luigi Bruti)
Garage Tango (EP - 4 tracks - CNI Music, Italy)

An evocation of bellows instruments (accordion, bandoneon, cajun) are blended with pop-dance arrangements in an unusual and surprisingly satisfying montage. In this CD the first 'virtual accordion' (Roland V-accordion) was used; its 'sound-modelling technology' enables the musicians to express his creativity, to seek out unexplored musical sounds and ideas. Luigi Bruti, who is responsible for developing Roland’s musical laboratory, is also the author of this musical instrument. This is a quirky, funny and ultimately noble experiment in electronic music.

Press from the record label:
“Garage Tango” is a provocative CD, a “back to future” album, where far-away forgotten sounds of bellows instruments (accordion, bandoneon, cajun) are blended with innovative pop-dance arrangements.

In this CD the first Virtual Accordion (Roland V-Accordion) in the world was used, whose physical sound modelling technology enables accordionists to express their creativity so as to sweep unexplored musical genres. Luigi Bruti, who’s responsible for Roland’s musical laboratory, is also the author of this musical instrument, that will be exhibited at the Musik Messe in Frankfurt as a worldwide preview and is bound to revolutionize the use and image of accordion.

The four pieces contained in this CD, that were composed together with the musician Marco Di Paolo, explore rhythmic and tone patterns ranging from the intriguing “garage tango” of Salvador, to the nevrotic “house polka” of Mad Mouse, through the spatial “euro dance” of Mars Desert up to the easy-listening commercial flavour of Astm.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
