Stella Marine is just one of the greatest pieces I ever heard. Incredible. This goes through every (brain) cells of your body.

Marine[muh-reen] adjective Relating to or living in the sea. First reissue of Biologia Marina, the first of Intervallo's seven reissues of the amazing nature-themed series of library LPs released in the first half of the '70s by Cardium, Chic, Nereide, Musical, Rhombus, Spring, and Weekend labels. These are seven albums that have never been reissued until now -- real collectors' items that have acquired a minor cult status in the decades since they first appeared. Biologia Marina (originally released in 1973 on Rhombus) features 12 tracks inspired by marine life, with a sound 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 one can find in this library -- one of the best Italian ones of its era. The album features renowned composer Alessandro Alessandroni (also credited under his Braen alias), as well as the outstanding contributions of two others -- Rome-bornAmedeo Tommasi (also under his Atmo alias), highly regarded author of some excellent libraries; andFranco Tamponi, violinist, composer, and conductor always crossing the line between classical music and marvelous soundtracks (such as the one for Mondo sexy di notte (1962)).This is science -- auditory science -- at its best. . . .

There's something very special about this album. It was definitely way ahead of its time, and even now.
