Bochum Welt's first ever American release! Already with a slew of critically acclaimed releases on Richard James' notorious label, Rephlex Records, Sony Music Japan, TRC-Warner Chapel, Axodya, Kromode, and Future Sound, Bochum Welt now delivers possibly his greatest work to date. Gianluigi Di Costanzo (aka Bochum Welt) continues to revive sounds of the 1980's with synthy string sounds, electro beats, and an old-school arcade game-feel, that have already turned heads all over the world on his previous releases such as 'Module 2' and 'Feelings on a Screen.' You may also have caught this guy accompanying his good friend, Aphex Twin, as an opening act at Rephlex performances all over the planet. Martians and Spaceships was recorded between San Mateo, CA, London and Milan. Thomas Dolby and the Beatnik Inc. Studios (San Mateo) assisted Gianluigi during the implementation of these recordings. Richard James (Aphex Twin/Warp, Rephlex, Sire) assisted in the programming of the track, 'Interlude.' Kim Cascone (Twin Peaks sound engineer and Beatnik Inc. sound designer) co-produced 'Blue Atmosphere.' The opening track, 'Altre Forme' features vocals by Marco Castoldi who is the singer for the Italian pop group, Music Bluvertigo (on Columbia/Sony Music). Last year, Music Bluvertigo won Italy's MTV music video award for Best Select Video. This release was completely produced on a laptop computer using all the latest and technologies - no external synthesizers, mixer or effects have been used. Martians and Spaceships is a completely computer-processed excursion. These days, Gianluigi Di Costanzo is a programmer and sound designer at Thomas Dolby's interactive technology company, Beatnik Inc. Beatnik Inc. has completed productions for Intel, Sega, Web TV, Columbia Tristar Television, Universal Studios, Steven Speilberg, and many others. We present you with this long-overdue American release from this Italian fella, and now it's time for you to reminisce your early days of Atari 2600's, Intelevisions, and Texas Instruments, and that simple artificial world that was once virtually effortless to absorb.
