“Controfase is an unknown (and almost lost) masterpiece. A shadowed giant of compositional skill and deft application – a moment when all the stars and their cycles align – unique, harmonious, undeniably perfect. From Walter Branchi’s skeletal web of processed VCS3 duetting with mournful violin, to Egoisto Macchi’s demonstrative percussion jousting Edda Dell’Orso’s breathless siren’s call, Morricone and Nicolai have crafted a radiant, forbidden jewel.”
