About this item

Coming in a luxurious box with hard cover on canvas like a painting, this new Cinedelic production rediscovers 3 rare 70s gems of Maestro Egisto Macchi. Born in Grosseto, Macchi studied in Rome composition, piano, violin and singing with, among others, Roman Vlad and Hermann Scherchen, and Human Physiology at the Università La Sapienza. Since the late fifties Macchi has been active in organizing music, in collaboration with a group of musicians (Franco Evangelisti, Domenico Guaccero, Daniele Paris), to whom he was bound by strong friendship. Along with Dominic Guaccero, Daniele Paris and Antonino Titone, he was among the editors of the magazine "Ordini", which appeared in 1959. With Bertoncini, Bortolotti, Clementi, De Blasio, Evangelists, Guaccero, Paris, Pennisi, Franco Nonnis, Macchi founded in 1960 the Association of New Consonance, on whose board he has repeatedly been a part, also holding the position of President from 1980 to 1982 and in 1989. Following the ANC was the dawn of the activities of Settimane Internazionali di Nuova Musica of Palermo. After giving life with Domenico Guaccero to the Teatro Musicale di Roma, Macchi was one of the founders of Studio R7 – an electronic laboratory for experimental music born in Rome in 1967. In the same year he was one of the members of the Gruppo d'Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza founded in 1964 by Franco Evangelisti. Macchi’s time in the 70s was mainly dedicated to experimentations in library music and film scores. Among the most noteworthy soundtracks he made at the time were for the label AYNA, which gave him full artistic freedom. From that catalogue, Cinedelic is reissuing together the LP PITTURA CONTEMPORANEA (CONTEMPORARY PAINTING) and the double LP PITTURA MODERNA 1 & 2 (MODERN PAINTING 1 & 2) released in 1975. Remastered from the original master tapes in a hard-shell case with canvas cover / 3 LP. Limited Numbered Deluxe Edition of 600 copies.
