Visioni Sconvolgenti collects unheard recordings the free jazz and experimental musician made over the last three decades.
Ditmas, a US native who's also lived and worked in Italy, is a well-regarded free jazz drummer and early modular synthesist. Among his better-known pursuits are a pair of 1977 albums, Aeray Dust and Yellow, which made use of the rare Moog Drum controller. Finders Keepers combined pieces from both those LPs into one record, Yellow Dust, back in 2015.
Visioni Sconvolgenti—Italian for "Shocking Visions"—comprises six short tracks that draw on three decades of material made using manipulated field recordings and percussion. We're told to expect "gritty tonal soundscapes and angular sonic sculptures that sound like Faust one minute, and the deconstructed club music and dissonant vocabulary of Chino Amobi or Helm the next."
