Michel Nolet – Electronic, Absolutely
Orbeatize is a record label run by Gianni aka Cesare Barbetta, who also runs the Boxes of Toys blog, out of Nardo, a town in the southern Italian region of Apulia. Boxes of Toys catalogues a large portion of Barbetta’s deep digging discoveries through sound and visual entries of electronic, dance, library and avant anomalies, many of them private or demos, from Italy and beyond. Orbeatize functions duly as a transmitter of weird recordings from the past (ORB) and strange visions of the present (BEAT).
Michel Nolet is an enigmatic Quebecois performer, composer, arranger producer and engineer. Electronic, Absolutely collects recordings from two private press cassettes: 1992’s Memories from Times to Come and 1990’s Absolutely Electronic. The material within ranges from wistful synth wailers to funky promenades and interior instrumental pop anthems.
