Punck - Piallassa (Red Desert chronicles)

by Boring Machines



In 1964 italian director Michelangelo Antonioni set his ninth movie Red Desert in the industrial area of Ravenna, the Piallassa Valley, full of huge cold factories and polluted rivers. Punck was born in 1964 in Ravenna. The record is a little journey on the original movie locations 43 years later. All the field recordings and found sounds used in the record come from the site, there’s a sample from the movie too and Aldo Becca (from Ravenna again) played acoustic guitar. The result is a picture of a moment, just like time stood still until now; family memories and industrial obsolescence in one of the most romantic but experimental records to listen to.

The record is a tribute to Michelangelo Antonioni, to Ravenna and the Piallassa valley.
