Walter Whitney – Composer X
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).
For the first time, Walter Whitney's Composer X has been released on vinyl. Capturing the spirit of a sensitive synthesist in early 80s St. Louis, it includes a track featuring frequent collaborator Carl Weingarten.
