This avant-garde Croatian composer and pianist's obscure experimental '70s work with his Acezantez Ensemble drew from all aspects of avant-garde music, including electronics and group improvisation. This release on Paradigm is the first available in the Western world since his LP on the Phillips Prospective series, which in the '70s was the most credible house for innovative compositional names such as Xenakis and Pierre Henry, who opened the doors to such avant-garde musical invention. This CD contains five pieces, from his '70s LPs released on the Croatian Jugaton label, that exhibit an outrageous juxtaposition of methods recalling the work of Luigi Nono and Maurucio Kagel in their instrumental and theatrical arrangements. Where atonality is to the fore in much avant-garde music, his sense of abrasion is met with bouts of melodic intervention. Elsewhere, heavy industrial sounds are used as percussive texture; mixed with forceful electronics and dramatic instrumental passages, they create a complex and textured series of compositions. From an artist who worked a long career in obscurity, listeners now have a document of vital and challenging work, thanks to the reissue bringing this out of the secret corners of Eastern European music.
