Committed musician, eclectic and generous, essentially self-taught, Egisto Macchi has gone with vigor and emotion through all the seasons of Italian music after World War II. In the wake of his personal inclinations and the lessons drawn directly to the works of his favorite authors (Schoenberg, Berg, Bartok, Puccini), he avoided to accept too rigid and binding methods of composition: while adhering to a serial principle of conduct in some of his early works, he diverged very early to take some forms of writing, the most personal and unconventional, sensitive to the influence of chance and free improvisation. The variety of experiences lived from M° E. Macchi (next to the composition, the musical organization, improvisation, electronic music) reveals on the one hand, the extent and the extroversion of his musical interests, on the other hand, the very limits of its production of art, that in fact remained on the margins of the history of the Italian avant-garde music.
