The first-ever release of Suzanne Ciani’s Help, Help, The Globolinks a very rare and highly sought after sci-fi cinematic recording will be released November 10 as a 12″ and a digital album.
Finally preserved after just a handful of exclusive theatrical airings over 35 years ago, Help, Help, The Globolinks an electronic soundtrack originally written and performed in 1968, and gaining worldwide acclaim throughout the 1970s, Gian Carlo Menotti would update and revise his play for the turn of the 80s which called for a new approach to the music and sound effects – all of which would see Ciani furnishing the multifaceted musical project which reveals Suzanne’s vibrant and versatile skills as an experimental musician and narrative sound designer.
Suzanne Ciani on speaking of the soundtrack told Finders Keepers “I was honoured to have been selected to create a new electronic score for Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera for children,” further adding “The original production had been in 1968 and I felt that the electronic music component could be more playful and less abrasive than the original production.”
For “Help, Help The Globolinks” Ciani’s intense revolutionary fervor can be heard on this virtually undocumented piece of work, having reinvented Menotti’s well-travelled aliens play with a brand new voice and the resulting score exudes genuine sounds of the future while retaining melodicism and personality in true Ciani style.
