Album Review

Borghi, Andrea – “VHS” – [Misanthropic Agenda]

cinder   2/5/2021   12-inch, A Library

Andrea Borghi (Italiano!) graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara and studied electronic music, piano and composition at the Giacomo Puccini Music Conservatory in La Spezia. His work focuses on creating sound from inanimate things such as sculptural objects, installations, obsolete media and electronics. This album consists of audio recordings that were produced through an open VHS Recorder using manipulated videotapes. Most of the sounds you hear were taken from background parts, edited from old tapes of obscure and underground cinema. It’s scratchy, creepy, noisy, static-y, weird, strange and very analog in sound. Looking at the album art, I can image watching this & other ideas he’s created, performed live would be so intriguing – a totally unique auditory sensation. Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, limited to 100 copies on LP!
