You've heard library music before... you just may not know it. Library music could be loosely defined as music composed to television, radio and film, to be used primarily in the background for a set piece, utilizing a myriad of moods from action, tension and suspense to comedy, dance and industrial soundscapes. It's a massive, magical musical world to discover, with thousands of talented composers from around the world-including many respected artists responsible for proper film scores-having plied their wares to the library field. Orgasmo Sonore is the moniker utilized by Canadian artist Frank Rideau, who has delved into obscure film music previously for releases on Cineploit Records, with Revisiting Obscure Library Music being the musician and composer's first foray into the vast library music genre, here recreating twelve iconic library tracks from such composers as Italy's Bruno Nicolai, Piero Umiliani and Alessandro Alessandroni to France's Jacky Giordano and Bernard Fevre. It's no secret that Orgasmo Sonore has chosen to mine particularly the 60s and 70s library scene here, for connoisseurs of the genre have longed championed these decades as a time when library music was it's most fantastic and funky peak. Yours truly would also add the electronically minded 80s library scene as an undervalued era for this music, but it must be said that Orgasmo Sonore does these classic tracks an immense amount of justice. Revisiting Obscure Library Music isn't so much a gathering of re-recordings as it is a re-imagining and updating of this material, giving it a whole new lease on life for a young, hopefully appreciative audience. There's a light and breezy bossa-nova vibe to such tracks as Umiliani's "Viadotti," while Nicolai's "Tempo Sospeso" benefits from such gloriously fuzzy guitar, arriving with a sound composed to some sort of imaginary giallo or terror film from 1970s Italy. This effort from Rideau and Orgasmo Sonore is successful in delivering the library groove goods, for sure, although here's hoping that there's a number of follow-up efforts in the work, as the world of library-from the hard edged crime funk to be found in Britain's music for The Sweeney and The Professionals to synthesizer library tracks used to American adult films of the 1970s and 80s-truly is precious treasure source for which to be mined. In the meantime, however, Revisiting Obscure Library Music is a most excellent start from Orgasmo Sonore. - George Pacheko / Boston Examiner.
