Title: La Mutazione
Format: LP + CD
Label: Black Truffle
Country: Australia
Price: $23.00
"A milestone originally released in 1985 on the legendary Broken Flag label, Giancarlo Toniuttis La Mutazione is renowned in certain circles as a classic and with good reason. The album comprises two subtle and haunting side-long explorations of dark cosmic electronics akin to Klaus Schulze, Cluster, Tangerine Dream, and Conrad Schnitzler filtered through the lens of Maurizio Bianchi, Whitehouse, Nurse With Wound, and The New Blockaders. At the time, Toniutti had just enrolled at the Venice Conservatory of Music with a heady amount of education in Stockhausen, Schaeffer, et al. These three musical poles come together in this beautiful and unsettling construction of layered static, analog synth explorations, concrete sounds, and field recordings. This limited edition reissue is an exact replica of the original Broken Flag LP release, with remastered audio and an inner sleeve containing archival photos and sketches from the period in which the work was created. This edition also includes a bonus CD of unreleased material from Toniuttis cassette archive featuring a collage of sound sketches recorded during the same time period, thus giving the listener a wider view into the sound-world that helped form La Mutazione. Black Truffle is proud to present La Mutazione on vinyl for the first time since its original 1985 issue. A landmark release, its influence is still being felt throughout the dark corners of experimental music." - Black Truffle.

Title: Epigenesi
Format: LP
Label: K di Rn
Country: Italy
Price: $20.00
"an initial approach to link a structural density less with systems, or non-linear, and towards a larger morphological dynamic." -Toniutti. From 1986. Numbered with booklet.

Title: The Early Tapes Period
Format: Triple LP & 10" Box
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $77.00
"Box set of Giancarlo Toniuttis 3 early works Wechselwirkung, Metánárkôsis, Das Todesantlitz which have all been published by Toniutti on cassette tapes in 1982-83 in a very limited numbered edition. The box also includes a 10" vinyl EP with previously unreleased tracks from that same very early period (1981-84). This work represents his early musical-work as solo composer. 1982-83 was the period, and experiments with early electronics, found objects, rough percussion and noise were the attitudes that coalesce into his first 3 cassette works found on this box. This past time becomes part of the future when historically contextualized. Early electronics, acoustic objects and the beginning of a form of structuralism was the mélange of that young mind. It will come with a booklet including an essay about the history of the period, notes and data." - Vinyl on Demand.
