Franco Leprino

it was 1977, the year when punk rock exploded in the face of disco-music, but some thinking heads in italy managed to escape the set trends of the year and walk a totally different path. pioneers like franco battiato had already been experimenting with a crash of rock and electroacoustic music since the beginning of the decade, and others like roberto cacciapaglia or riccardo zappa would explore farther in those lands, mixing acoustic instruments with the bourgeoning synth technology.
