Maurizio Bianchi began to produce electronic music in 1979, creating his art in the lo-fi world of underground cassette culture. Complete with wordy arcane liner notes that delight in "agoraphobic atomicity" and "altruistic bacterial sickness," for example, Bianchi explores decay
and the human condition armed with concrete sounds, schizoid frequencies, neural effects, eccentric sounds, and archaic loops. Released in 2006, bacterie presents us with some of his most compelling work-slabs of sonic detrius, sludgy deposits, and chilly cracked ambience, all wrapped in a definitive M.B. frequency painting.
