"ZAJ has always been located close to the limits of the arts, the music, the theatre, the writing, the word, the object, the body. This has conducted to stay at the borders of the traditional artistic circuits, of the institutional spaces and, curiously enough, of the official vanguardias (fluxus, wiener aktionismus, etcS?). Since 1964 ZAJ organise several festivals and premiered most of the compositions of Walter Marchetti and Juan Hidalgo. They also invited other composers including the devastating performance of Fontana-Mix-Feed by Max Neuhaus in 1965 and a reading of Bernard Heidsieck in 1967. They privately issued 5 ZAJ-books: Juan Hidalgo Viaje a Argel, 1967, and De Juan Hidalgo, 1971; José Luis Castillejo La Caida de lAvion, 1967, and La Politica, 1968; Walter Marchetti Larpocrate seduto sul loto, 1968. But they never produced a recordS? And here it is, the first ZAJ record ever issued: Una Voz, written by Juan Hidalgo, read by Javier Martinez Cuadrado and recorded by Walter Marchetti who also added some music by opening the windows on Paseo de Santa Maria de la Cabeza. An evening in Madrid on September 1967. As Juan Hidalgo wrote for the liner notes: I spent about 10 years reading, hearing and meditating, outside, around and inside Zen Buddhism. Una Voz, this repetitive vocal music, couldnt have been conceived without these circumstances. This metaphysic work developed in the years I was living in Italy; first in Milan and then in Rome. Walter Marchetti and John Cage supported all this with their knowledge and friendship. The final result is a reflection on life, non-life, pain and pleasure. This project has been coordinated by Walter Marchetti who strongly wanted this LP to be the first ZAJ record. This edition also includes a 16 pages booklet (size cm. 30x30) with the complete Spanish text (first published in De Juan Hidalgo) and the English translation. Edition of 323 copies." - Alga Marghen.
