Mindblowing double LP taken by a Maurizio Bianchi impossible-to-find early tape (from 1980!) "decomposed" in October 1980 using cacophonelectronics, and dedicated to the physical attraction to Sylvia Simonelli (September 1980/June 1981) “The genesis of this work is  incredible. In the office where I worked, I had found a stamp with ‘’COMPRESA’’ (in English, included) written over it, and so I came to the starting point for a new experimental work. Erasing before the second, fourth, sixth and eighth letter, so I obtained the title ‘’CMRS’’, on the other hand by deleting the first, third, fifth and seventh letter, I obtained the title ‘’OPEA’’ , and it fascinated me. I had recently bought a synth KORG MS20 and so I began to experiment with it, but  having only one output  jack, I had to  connect it to an AKAI cassette recorder that had  two inputs, so  the inevitable consequence  was  a  mono recording (something   that  was  strictly  maintained, but divided  on 2 channels). The result that followed was a cassette format C-90, with very grim and voluptuous electronic sounds, and it was distributed only to a very few friends and followers. All this happened back in October 1980. Then this recording became virtually untraceable, until a few years ago when I was in contact with Vittore Baroni who wrote me that he had a recording that I had given him several years previously, precisely ‘’CMRS/OPEA’’! So this work of historical value will surely make happy a lot of my genuine fans”. (Maurizio Bianchi - February  07, 2015)

Originally issued as private C-90 cassette in about 7/8 copies, and distributed only to very close friends. Mastered with supervised by M.B. - 2015 Milano. No changes of pitch were made in the mastering process.
