Product Description

RSD 2018 release. Reissue; 35th anniversary edition. Mannequin Records present a reissue of Doris Norton's Norton Computer For Peace, or Nortoncomputerforpeace, originally released on Durium Records in 1983. This is a part of a trilogy of reissues from the avant-garde Italian-born producer, released alongside Personal Computer (MNQ 120LP, 1984) and Artificial Intelligence (1985). Apple's first music "endorsement" and Roland affiliate, Doris Norton is one of the most important women pioneer in the use of synths and in the early electro/computer music. Norton is the wife of Antonio Bartoccetti, progressive rock guitarist, and mother of the musician and techno producer Rexanthony. As a teenager, she was drawn to medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music, not to mention quantum physics, differential equations, organic chemistry, the experimentalism of John Cage, and animated movie soundtracks. Her love for modules and circuits found expression through the waves of an old harmonium, the frequencies of a MiniMoog, a Roland System 100M, a Roland System 700, and the ARP 2500/2600. In 1980, Norton began her solo career by recording at Fontana Studio 7, the Milan studio of the composer and musician Tito Fontana, resulting in the electronic opera Under Ground. Norton became more prolific, continuing her adventures in experimental electronics and computer music with Parapsycho (1981), Raptus (1981), Nortoncomputerforpeace (1983), Personal Computer (1984) -- whose album cover prominently features Apple's colored logo -- and Artificial Intelligence (1985). Third studio album, Nortoncomputerforpeace involved Doris Norton, Antonius Rex, and Rudy Luksch (hardware engineer). "Don't Shoot At Animals" was used as original soundtrack for the RAI TV program Rumore Di Fondo directed by Umberto Marino.
