Product Details

Mannequin Records' excavation into early '80s Italian minimal syntheasizer continues with the 1982-1983 demo tapes of Turin's Monuments, following the label's 2013 reissue of their only official release, the 1984 mini-LP Age (MNQ 040LP), which comprises six incredibly fantastic electro-pop tracks. Monuments came into being in January 1981 when Mauro Tavella (keyboards, programming) and Andrea Costa (keyboards, voice) pooled their artistic experiences. From the outset, they produced exclusively synthesized music, following the natural evolution in electronic music from the early days with monophonic synthesizers to the latest virtual sounds generated with the aid of computers. Most of tracks included here were composed between the summer and autumn of 1982 in the duo's private TKS recording studio in Turin. Some were made at the beginning of 1983, but only one, Clock's Room, was later rearranged and included on Age. Edition of 300.
