The scientific study of life and of living organisms. Botany, zoology, and ecology are all branches of biology.
Relating to or living in the sea
First reissue (of seven planned) of the amazing nature-themed series of libraries released in the first half of the Seventies by labels Cardium, Chic, Nereide, Musical, Rhombus, Spring and Weekend. These are seven albums which have never been reissued, until now: real collector’s items which acquired the status of minor cult in the years.
"Biologia marina" (originally released in 1973) features 12 tracks inspired by marine life – with a mood suspended between electronic music, avant-garde touches and underwater melodies. Tracks such as "Correnti sottomarine", "Acque tranquille", "Subsuspense","Acquario" or "Bollicine", recorded well before certain ambient music experimentations, are among the most fascinating you can find in this library – one of the best Italian ones of that era.
The album features renowned composer Alessandro Alessandroni (also credited with his own alias: Braen), but also the outstanding contributions of two others: Trieste-born Amedeo Tommasi (also with his alias Atmo), highly appreciated author of some excellent libraries; and Franco Tamponi, violinist, composer and conductor always crossing the line between classical music and marvellous soundtracks (such as the one for "Mondo sexy di notte")
This is science – auditory science – at its best...
