In A New Life, electronic effects bring a welcome Renaissance, and Old Masters take on a new meaning. The tape borrows from Dante’s The New Life – using the cut-and-paste facilities of the Supernova to montage picture by Mantegna into new composite images – and does so with a finesse that draws out affinities between now and then.
