Amazing electronic synth experimentations for tow long "epic" pieces that includes classical motifs. Franco Leprino is less known than others "avant garde" progressive Italians as Franco Battiato...However his unique musical universe really deserves a listening for all fans of Italian Progressive rock and for those who enjoy deep listening. "Integrati...Disintegrati" features formidable musical dialogues between lyrical aspects of classical music, electronic weirdness and synth meditation. "Part 01" starts with pleasant floating keyboards, accompanied by "poetical" acoustic guitars sections. The atmosphere is full of colour and beauty, always exploring the introspective side of musical creation. The track ends up with sumptuous evocative, echoing guitar chords. "Part 02" delivers a more "difficult" composition, including psychedelic synth moves, collage sounds, noises. It carries on a very pastoral & enchanting "trip" for flute and guitar then turns to something really ethereal and mysterious for melodic (almost symphonic) synth lines. A forgotten 70's prog masterpiece.
