Title: La Natura E LUomo
Format: LP
Label: Intervallo
Country: Italy
Price: $27.00
"Intervallo present a reissue of La Natura E LUomo, originally released in 1973. Intervallos third reissue in the incredible series of nature-themed libraries originally released in the first half of the 70s by Cardium, Chic, Nereide, Musical, Rhombus, Spring, and Weekend labels. Real hardcore collector items which gave birth to a small cult during the last four decades. La Natura E LUomo, (Italian for "nature and mankind"), first came out in 1973; despite being part of the same series as Biologia Marina (1973) and Ittiologia (1973) (part of Intervallos reissue series), it is actually a different affair, in which the avant-garde urge partly leaves room for sweeter, acoustic atmospheres. But there are also amazing examples of ambient experimentations such as "Protozoi" or "Venus", both featured in two versions. The main characters of this release are pretty much the same ones we met in the other volumes: Alessandro Alessandroni, Franco Tamponi, and Amedeo Tommasi. La Natura E LUomo also introduces two new names: Marco Di Marco, author of the tracks with a more definite easy listening mood, is a pianist and a jazz composer from Bologna, while the alias Kema hides Alessandronis wife, the amazingly talented Giulia De Muittis, who was an equally formidable force. She and her husband are responsible for the most enticing tracks of the album: "Bassa Marea", "Pescatori", and "Venus". Edition of 400." - Intervallo.

Title: JMSA Presents Wave from Free Music
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
Previously unreleased live recordings during Sep. 2003 - Feb. 2004. Features: Keiji Haino (hurdy-gurdy); Kazuo Imai (guitar); Junichiro Okuchi (piano); Michihiro Sato (tsugaru syamisen); Yoshihide Otomo (turn-table); Masayoshi Urabe (alto sax). "Compilation containing six lengthy solo tracks by some of the most fascinating improvising musicians currently active in Japan. The CD documents a series of lecture-concerts, exploring the meanings, methods and implications of free music, which took place between September 2003 and February 2004 at Mesar Haus in Tokyo. Approaches vary between the endlessly fascinating, grey kaleidoscopic fields of Hainos hurdy-gurdy, the art-brut physical terrorism of Masayoshi Urabe, the traditional improvisatory, plucking style of Satos tsugaru-jamisen, and the anti-fundamentalist feedback dialectics of Otomos turntable work. All bore channels through time-space continua and consensus reality like no ones business." - Alan Cummings.
