Arrigo Lora-Totino – Toccata vocale / Ursprache 7“



Edition of 100 copies.
“Working at the vinyl release of the Trio Prosodico we had the chance to meet Arrigo Lora-Totino and to go with him through his archive of reel tapes and unreleased material, bumping into these two pieces belonging to a completely different nature compared to the ones we were acquainted with – less “acting” and much more “exercise” – where the voice is stressed to its limits in two opposite ways. Toccata vocale is a boiling chorus of short vowel sounds – like hiccuping bullets of a jammed machine gun – while Ursprache is a creepy flow of stretched growling voices ending with a multilingual echoing scream.
