Originally issued in 1977, and among the most uncategorizable and sought after artefacts of the Italian avant-garde, Luciano Cilio 'Dialoghi Del Presente' is a masterwork with few equivalents. Faithful to the original pressing, exclusive edition in clear vinyl, available in very limited supply. Grab one before their gone.
Remarkable and beautiful on every count, these recording emerge with towering historical importance - not only a window into the root of the 1970's American Avant-garde and Minimalism, but also into rarely heard aspects of the ancient traditions of Indian Classical music. This one is as essential as they come - a link between the future and the past. It won’t sit around for long, so move as fast as you can.
Long neglected and overlooked, the composer and artist Henning Christiansen was one the 20th Century’s most striking creators of sound. A pioneering member of Fluxus’ Danish arm, he possessed a singular vision, driving his work into uncharted realms and sculpting a body of work which resembles little else. We are thrilled to announce two remarkable releases, comprised of archival works recorded in 1970 and in the late 80s, now issued on vinyl for the first time by Milan based imprint Holiday Records.
As Brian Eno writes in the liner notes on the original release, "Within the first couple of minutes it became obvious to me that Basil had not only discovered a whole new area of sound, but had exploited it with extreme skill and sensitivity, producing beautiful and evocative music as well.... So Basil Kirchin has made a double contribution: he has not only built the instrument, but has written and played the first successful works for it."
Edition of 400 copies. An essential entry, offering crucial insight into one of America’s most important composers. Beautiful, challenging, and visionary, this what music should always be - the heights of creativity bound to the specificity of time
