Gruppo NPS – “Nuove Proposte Sonore 1965-1972” – [Die Schachtel]
Headed by Teresa Rampazzi, this collective started in 1964 in Italy. Ennio Chiggio is another solid member. This is super minimal, analog sounds being experimented with. Tapes being looped, reversed, stretched, and played at various speeds. It’s interesting to read how each track was made, along with their drawings. One sound being fed back to it through a speaker, or being overlapped, creating pulses and wibbles. Very outer space alien sounding at times. Could see this as the hidden soundtrack to ‘Scanners’. Highlighted words: amplitude modulator, variable speed, contrasting frequencies and impulsive sounds.
