Thanks God, this gem is available again, and in vinyl format; short print run of 300 copies only, so don't sleep. Cinedelic Records present a reissue of Egisto Macchi's Il Deserto, originally released in 1974. This incredible double album recorded in 1974 is truly an astounding experimental mystical trip to the desert. It is the rarest avant-garde music library by Egisto Macchi (founding member of Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza) and surely one of the most interesting and intriguing experimental albums. This reissue presented here comes with the original, longer uncut tunes from the master tapes.
The continuous search of Italian library music of the golden age for replication has led Cinedelic to deepen in the last year a reality, strangely not from Rome and Milan, but from Florence. It is a little label that has produced some tens of LPs in the 70’s named Ayna. It was established by producer Sir. Bruzzichelli and Maestro Egisto Macchi (Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza – The Group). This incredible double album truly is an astounding experimental mystical trip to the desert and comes with the original longer uncut tunes from the master tapes never heard before. The LPs on this label are very rare are highly sought after; they were printed in a few copies with generic white covers. Among all the catalog Cinedelic chose the 3 titles they thought were the most interesting and different from each other and, with patience and many hours of research, found the original master tapes.
The rarest avant-garde music library by Egisto Macchi and surely one of the most interesting and intriguing experimental albums. A real journey in the desert recorded in 1974.
