Unimother 27 is a project by Italian multi-instrumentalist Piero Ranalli. Ranalli explores similar territory to Krautrock adventurers such as Ash Ra Tempel and Tangerine Dream, but in his own unique way. One of the things that makes Ranalli’s music stand out is his penchant for quirky, fascinating rhythms, which give the music a feel not unlike, yet very different from those artists that inspired him.
The first work of Unimother 27 has been released on April 2006 by Pineal Gland Lab. The second album “Escape from the ephemeral mind” has been released on May 2007. “Grin” the third album has been released on June 2008. “Frozen Information” the fourth album has been released on October 2015. On 2016 has been released “Jammin’ from the network Vol. I-VII” (only digital version on Bandcamp). “Fiore Spietato” the fifth album has been released on February 2017.
