RESTOCKED, very last copies around, and price reduced!  A lovely reissue of a collection of rare experimental, avant-garde music that was composed/recorded in 1972 by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai for the RCA catalogue. It was entitled "Dimensioni Sonore" and was issued across 10 LPs and created to be used as library/background music that film-makers could licence to use in their productions. The music of each track was created in order to give, in a series of expressive dynamic work through constant timbric exploitations and multiform musical parameters, ample possibilities of utilization. Due to the varied possibilities of utilization, we are not giving a description of each composition, as it is easily done with background music. The titles chosen for each composition do not have any meaning with the music itself. The only way to discern the meaning and the feeling of these compositions is to listen to them.  The composers went wild on experimenting with timbres, structures and treatments and the whole series is a must-have for listeners into Nuova Consonanza, whose members are playing on some tracks. In the restoration of the old tapes, we have not used electronic additions or other kinds of filters used today. Special attention has been taken to preserve the original sound of the original recording sessions; the sound of each instrument is absolutely the same as when it was first recorded. Housed in a very nice thick cardboard box set, restored and digitally edited in a six CD Box, limited to 500 copies
