Otra Musica Collection

Guillermo Gregorio

The full title of this landmark collection, "Otra Musica: Tape Music, Fluxus & Free Improvisation in Buenos Aires 1963-70" says a tremendous amount this overwhelming package. Though he has only recently come to international attention through his recordings for hatART as a leader, Argentinean clarinetist and alto saxophonist Guillermo Gregorio had a fascinating earlier artistic incarnation in Buenos Aires. Heretofore totally unknown, these recordings bring to light an incredibly sophisticated sound-world of proto-electronica, fluxus-oriented performance art and very early free improvised music, all from a virtually secret enclave of South American experimentalism. Sixteen tracks, none ever released before, with various groups including Movimiento Música Más, totally free duets with trumpeter Carlos Miralles from '64, and an astounding solo alto piece from the same year. Presented in a DELUXE 14-panel accordian bookle!t
