4 stars Killer sleeve, killer electronic, and funny funky voices. This obscure album "Rapsodia Meccanica" has completely attracted me along with its eccentricity and electro-revolution. Francesco CURR' is an Italian poet / writer / musician who started his musical activity in mid 1970s ... the phrase "Musica elettronica italiana" reminds me of Hydrus or Elektriktus, but his electronic texture sounds neither refined nor polished like theirs. Very earth-smelling. It's said he created this album through his tough experience as a mechanic engineer (if I'm not wrong) and the creation sounds stunned with his cynics for the hardship.

All aside listen to the beginning, that is flooded with cynical, distorted, painful mechanical noise tonic. As if we came into contact with infernal drawings, these "visualized" electronic bullets are shot into our brain one by one. Francesco's shouts - I cannot understand Italian though - sound like ones labour squeeze from their stomach. Sometimes strong and sometimes cheesy, but totally mindbending his words are. Regardless of pop touches, danceable steps or classical phrases featured here and there, no compromise can be heard via his core of soundscape. For me sounds like "Non Mi Parlare Di Rivoluzione" be played upon his dancing under such a tough work situation ... it's very fine indeed but not only pleasure but also plaintiveness can be heard via this stuff, yes, he would like to shout "revolution" during this danceable squash methinks.

His music attraction can be found not only via his toughness, his painful shouts, or cynical electronics, but via his pleasant music toys produced with plenty of elements (especially classical ones). Between electronic damages, we can find quite refined pieces, maybe magnificently influenced by chamber music. In the latter part "La Massa Della Miseria" - a grapple with flute and violin - and the following track "Tavola Ansaldina" drenched in eccentric noise streams and melancholic melodies are remarkably intriguing. Based upon his way of life work but strictly supported by his musical intellect, this obscurity can be recommended as a progressive electronic gem.
