Out of stock

Two LPS in 180 Gram Vinyl High Quality Pressing. "'I have one Sinfonie' professed Hermann Nitsch identifying with Bruckner who made a similar claim of his symphonic output. For comparison, La Monte Young has a similar concept, for example, The Tortoise, His Dreams, and Journey's from 1964 -- eternity, with each realization, the piece never ends; it's a continuation. Professionally recorded in 1990 in Vienna and realized by a professional orchestra, the 8th Sinfonie by Hermann Nitsch is a triumphantly charged live performance by Ensemble 20 Jahrhundert, the Hugo Distler Choir, a Blasorchester (Brass Band), and Noise Orchestra.The 8th Sinfonie was produced to commemorate the 62nd Birthday of the Viennese Actionist founder Hermann Nitsch. The cover is a heavy 12" by 12" black card with gold embossing on one side and black embossing on the reverse. Included are and A4 insert showing an excerpt of the score and 4.25" by 11" yellow insert with details of the edition and advertising for other Nitsch editions on Cortical Foundation. The LPs are contained in clear PVC bags and have black labels with no information. Run out groove etching label which side is which part. Limited to 185 copies."
