i know this dude was part of Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza in the 60s, and has played with AMM (if I'm not mistaken), and so has real credentials under his belt. but i had put off exploring his daunting body of work, party because a lot, most? of it is the kitschy spaghetti western film stuff that he is known for, which does not interest me that much.
but today. oh my lord. bless my i-pod and its random function.
disc 3 is "Chamber Music" and comprises some criminally gorgeous stuff. entirely outrageous. tones that would make Lucier proud. free flurries of flutes like Evan Parker's circular breathing technique adopted by mythical forest furry creatures. ok before i start applying even more outlandish similes hear for yourself:
(by the way disc 1 is the film stuff (yawn), 2 is pretty great Chopinesque piano music, and 4 is symphony music - haven't really listened - can i up just disc 3 even though it is commercially available? i dunno... need some convincing)
anyone know more about this aspect of his work? the more avant C / contemporary music / improvisation side? i did some googling but couldn't find any good info. and dude has to have a bunch of other styles / periods, right? anyone care to break it down a little bit?
also, the "new music" and jazz heads here, is there a good forum to discuss things like this or Scelsi or Spectral shit?
