The lyrics depict the Alberto Baldan Bembo LAmica Di Mia Madre of a baby who slowly takes shape in his mother's womb On the instrumental middle section synthesizers come in describing the mystery of life flowing in the veins of fate, then an acoustic guitar arpeggio introduces an almost mystical atmosphere.
The following "Una cellula" A cell features a dreamy mood while the lyrics conjure up images from a future where time gets blurred The music and lyrics describe in a surreal way the magic of the process by which a cell, which has previously replicated each of its chromosomes, separates the chromosomes in its cell nucleus into two identical sets of Battiato Fetus, each set in its own new nucleus, Battiato Fetus process that is maybe blind or just "enlightened by a memory without past But beware!
Chance can alter the process leading to unpredictable effects. Then Franco Battiato's vocals come in and draw some reflections about the role of chance in the reproductive process Then a second part follows introduced by strange percussion patterns Battiato Fetus the vocals repeat the DNA formula.
The track ends with a reprise of the third part of the title track "Meccanica" Mechanics is darker and begins with synthesizers in the Michi Sarmiento Y Su Combo Bravo Salsa Picante that Gary Wilson You Think You Really Know Me a sense of tension.
Then an acoustic section follows and the music and lyrics depict a laboratory where the genes of love are manipulated to shape a new form of life featuring mechanical eyes and brain, a plastic heart and a synthetic taste. On the final section you can hear the voices of the astronauts of the Apollo 11 and Bach's "Air on a G string". Next comes the Battiato Fetus "Anafase" Anaphase. Anaphase is the stage of mitosis or meiosis when chromosomes are split and the sister chromatids move to opposite poles of the cell, but in this case the lyrics and music conjure up an interstellar journey.
Some spaceships take off towards the immensity - Will man colonize new planets? The conclusive "Mutazione" Mutation seems to suggest the answer for the previous question Well, on the whole an interesting album with a concept half-way between science-fiction and spiritualism!
Certainly one of the more controversial artiste of the peninsula or should I say the peninsula ;oBattiato owes a good deal of his early career to controversial issues such as abortion this one or pollution Battiato Fetus next.
Battiato Fetus the man was really having aesthetics and political issues or whether he was Battiato Fetus looking for fame and glory through controversial public exposition, the first part of his career would be leaning for the first choice, while his post 70's career would meake you think the second supposition would be more accurate, for the man has literally touched almost every single music genre or style.
But coming back to Fetus and Battiato Fetus super- tasteless "artwork", let alone the gigantic vagina entrance on the inner gatefold sleevethis album has every right to be claimed as a unique record for the music on it, but the previous releases all singles I believe hinted at a light pop artistes.
So whether this album is indeed voluntarily experimental and very clumsy or the resulting equally clumsy work of a "poseur", while unclear as Perfect Taste Feat Raishe Yanba Its Over may be, Battiato Fetus Fetus album has every right to perk up proghead's interest.
The group we're talking of a septet, including Franco is rather clumsy for most of their atonal or dissonance sound more accidental, rather than carefully planned, DEBRIS DEBRIS hinting a lack of depth in the department, but clearly compared to future albums, it is clear that they were still learning Etoile De Dakar Bou Bess Bi Thiapathioly craft.
From the three part-opening track to the middle tracks that perspires un-programmed musical adventures at least, let's hope they are un-programmedthe album probably makes sense to those that are close friends of the band.
Not helping is the production of such an album, but the following one holds many more imperfections than Fetus. Agreeing much more with my young Ricochet colleague than the calm Andrea, I tend to think that this music is too strident and astringent Battiato Fetus really be natural and even honest. I remember hearing once the English version of this album and as you'd guess, the original Italian version Battiato Fetus rules.
But only compared to that one album. Not exactly recommendable, the Battiato album is only for those confirmed fans, that you'll easily guess I'm not a part of. Franco Battiato was active in Battiato Fetus for years before the release of this his debut album. He struggled for years as a singers artist in Milan recording under the name of Francesco before getting together with some musicians he had Battiato Fetus with and forming the group Osage Tribe.
After a couple of singles he left to start his solo career before the release of the groups seminal Arrowhead album. Those singles being available on the CD release Battiato Fetus the album as bonus tracks. Fetus was released early in While it didn't have the commercial impact of his Battiato Fetus album Buzz Fuzz Thunderdome 4 EP which went top 10 in the charts later in the year it was critically acclaimed and recognized as a defining point in the prog movement of the 70's.
In fact an English version of the album was recorded to try to break Battiato in the english speaking world. Unfortunately the album was never released until the nineties. However Battiato did try to break into England and played two fairly high profile shows at London's Roundhouse, supporting first Magma and later Ash Ra Tempel.
And it was at this time that Frank Zappa, on hearing Pollution, famously called Battiato's work 'genius'. Fetus is such an interesting album because from Battiato Fetus start is spotlights two defining aspects of his music that endured through the 70's even as his sound and his style mutated.
One is his passion for exploring minimalism. The other being his incredible sense of melody. Both would be expanded upon. While his explorations with minimalism would culminate in his late 70's albums, his superior sense Battiato Fetus melody would take him past the days of prog. Now for the album itself Only his next Battiato Fetus, Pollution will you find Battiato accompanied by a true backing band. Battiato is the only credited musician here. The 'star' of this album is Battiato and his VCS3 synthesizer.
For texture sakes there are other instruments of course but his synth is the prevalent sound on the album. The album is a short one. The album is a nice mix Battiato Fetus psych elements, folk, and symphonic. Effective twists and turns in mood and dynamics like any good prog album should have. Songs with melodies of The Little Boy Blues In The Woodland Of Weir beauty that they just latch onto you and catch yourself hours later humming them out loud.
The compositions and instrumentation as noted about are in the minimalist vein. Rather than being bludgeoned with scores of galloping instruments or excessive and pointless complexity. We have an album that is truly progressive and forward thinking without falling victim to being Battiato Fetus for prog's sake'. The album starts with the title track Battiato Fetus the album that begins with. Una Cellula is another synth driven song, accompanied by pounding tom-toms, with lovely singing by Battiato on it.
Love the harmonized vocals on that. Very inviting and warm. The next one, Cariocinesi, is a wonderful change of pace with a violin taking the melodic lead on this one. Very Battiato Fetus folk inspired track. The next two are my favorites on the album. Energia has a catchy as hell synth melody after a reprise of the theme of the theme and melody form the album's opening track.
The track ends with a organ outro that reminded me of something right out of Pink Floyd's Cirrus Minor. Fenomenologia begins with an mellow acoustic guitar and vocal section that raised the hair on my arms the first time I heard it. Beautiful stuff. The tempo picks up with an an organ and pounding tom-tom section with Battiato singing in a harsh strained manner but ending with the section that closed the opening Ennio Morricone Vergogna Schifosi on the album.
Good stuff. Meccanica is the longest on the album. I have seen this album called Battiato Fetus some the. ON this track you can really see it. Anafase is next up and is a bit of psych synth workout. Interesting to say the least. As far as rating the album Battiato Fetus good addition to your prog collection but not the one I would start your Battiato collection with. This is a good album.
Nothing against this album For me 3 stars. On this '70s outing, an early work by the Italian experimental pop composer, the great singer was influenced considerably by his background in Blerta Wild Man electronic music.
As a student of Karlheinz StockhausenFranco Battiato was enthusiastic about electronic music, and found his voice as a minimalist composer who combined avant-garde minimalism, experimental rock, and popular forms Battiato Fetus a strange hybrid of abstract sound that touches on Tangerine Dream-like passages.
Titles such as "Una Cellula," "Energia," "Fenomenologia," and "Mutazione" may indicate that this is a heavy concept album indeed, and the theme of birth and rebirth may well have been a hot topic of the time.
Battiato 's albums can simultaneously be a display of genius and an overindulgent mess of '70s-style studio tricks, and it is that fine line of tension that somehow makes them all sublime. A common thread runs through his work right up until his release, Fleurs. Whatever the trends in popular music of the time, he appropriates them into Battiato Fetus own form, with his idiosyncratic songs remaining centrifugal regardless of the wildness of the experiment.
