Sensations' Fix is an Italian progressive rock/electronic musical ensemble led by Franco Falsini.


Falsini, born in Italy, moved to Virginia in 1969, where he set up a basement studio and experimented with a Moog and four-track taping before returning to Italy to form a band.[3] The group signed with Polydor Records in 1974 to a five-year, six-album contract.[4]

Sensations' Fix music remained out of print for many years, but in 2011, Naso Freddo was reissued by the Spectrum Spools label.[5][6] In 2012, RVNG Records reissued some Sensations' Fix material along with alternate mixes and unreleased tracks on the compilation Music Is Painting in the Air (1974-1977).[7][8]
