One of the most important documents of this legendary Italian group – a key bridge not only between the worlds of avant composition and free improvisation, but also between the soundtrack and sound library scenes as well! The group were groundbreaking – and still have never been matched today – and worked in a blend of acoustic and electronic elements that came off as something completely fresh and unusual in their hands – qualities that make them every bit as important as the French pioneers of musique
concrete, even though they never got the same credit at the time. This package brings together concert performances and improvisations – with members who include Egisto Macchi, Ennio Morricone, Mario Bertoncini, Walter Branchi, Franco Evangelisti, and Frederic Rzewski – as well as a live 1967 performance on DVD, directed by Theo Gallehr. The quantity of material on this package is greater than the previous issue – with more unearthed material – and in addition to the DVD, the whole thing also features a heavy book, with photos and notes in English and Italian. Selections include "Concreto 1", "Kate", "A7-2", "Trio", "A5-3", "Es War Einmal", and "Fili 2" – plus 13 improvisations, and other selections too.
