First Ever Official Reissue Remastered from the Original Master Tapes!I talian avant-garde and film composer Egisto Macchi (1928-1992) produced a large and largely forgotten catalog of astounding music during the 1960s and 1970s. At the crest of that incredible body of work stands Voix, an LP of intense contrasts; haunting, dissonant choirs collide with dexterous ‘musique concrete’ manipulations and other worldly soundscapes, while guitars buzz and strings scrape violently.
The world of Voix is a frightening and beautiful place. There are echoes here of Macchi’s friend and famous collaborator (in the avant composer’s collective ‘Il Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’) Ennio Morricone, yet Egisto Macchi existed in a musical universe truly all his own, and the time for a reappraisal of this undiscovered cosmology has surely come.
Some consider Egisto Macchi to be an unheralded genius and this rarely heard haunting Italian masterpiece of choral/orchestral/avant/musique concrete soundscapes is the very zenith of his art! Presented as an exact replica of the incredibly rare 1975 Gemelli library LP, this first ever official reissue was remastered from the original master tapes and comes complete with scholarly liner notes as an insert.
