Artist: MACCHI, EGISTO
Title: Biologia Animale e Vegetale
Format: Triple LP Box
Label: Cinedelic
Country: Italy
Price: $73.00
"Cinedelic records present a reissue of one of Egisto Macchis major works, Biologia Animale e Vegetale, produced by Renato Pent. Biologia Animale e Vegetale was recorded in Torino in 1976 and originally published as double LP. Egisto Macchi, often remembered as a member of Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, the historic Italian improvising collective (that also included Franco Evangelisti and Ennio Morricone, among others), was a major figure within the contemporary music field from the fifties to the eighties. The life path of Egisto Macchi seemed to be devoted to the multiplicity of aesthetic choices and musical expressions. While tracing his life and work, one notices an interesting duality based both on a very inclusive approach towards all kind of expressive needs and full control of the level of communication. A complex personality revealing the coherence of a man trying to connect elements usually kept separate; the inherent need for approaching different sources and the ability to be inspired by a wide range of intuitions. Macchi has explored and experimented in the field of sound and music without ever forgetting about his moral and civil engagement. His compositional work takes shape from the idea that music and arts should be able to create a symbiotic contact between the creator (composer) and the beneficiary (listener). All his work finds its origin in the need to integrate the sound language with the feeling of a new developing society. In fact music was just one factor in a more complex chain which included his humanistic and sociological engagement; a syncretic philosophical narrative and a symbolic tale revealing deep anthropological aspects. The 3LP box set is a limited edition of 600. The 3LP box set also comes as 180 gram vinyl and includes a download code." - Cinedelic.

Title: Il Deserto/Pittura Contemporanea/Pittura Moderna N.1 & 2
Format: Triple CD Box Set
Label: Cinedelic
Country: Italy
Price: $43.00
“Remastered reissues of four rare 70s gems by Italian composer Egisto Macchi, collected in a deluxe box with canvas cover. Remastered from the original master tapes. Limited edition of 300 numbered copies. Includes the Il Deserto LP (originally released in 1974), the Pittura Contemporanea LP (originally released in 1975), and Pittura Moderna No.1 and No.2 (originally released together as a double LP in 1975). Macchi was born in Grosseto, Italy, in 1928, and studied composition, piano, violin, and singing in Rome with, among others, Roman Vlad and Hermann Scherchen. He also studied literature and human physiology at Sapienza University of Rome. Beginning in the late 50s, Macchi was active in organizing music, particularly in collaboration with a group of musicians and composers (Franco Evangelisti, Domenico Guaccero, Daniele Paris) to whom he was bound by strong friendship. Along with Guaccero, Paris, and Antonino Titone, Macchi was among the editors of Ordini magazine, which appeared in 1959. With Bertoncini, Bortolotti, Clementi, De Blasio, Evangelisti, Guaccero, Paris, Pennisi, and Franco Norris, he founded the Association of New Consonance in 1960, serving on the board and holding the position of President from 1980 to 1982 and in 1989. He later became involved with the activities of the Settimane Internazionali di Nuova Musica of Palermo. After his part, with Guaccero, in the founding of the Teatro Musicale di Roma, Macchi was one of the founders of Studio R7, an electronic laboratory for experimental music established in Rome in 1967. That same year, he became a member of the Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, founded in 1964 by Evangelisti. Macchis work in the 70s was mainly dedicated to experimentations in library music and film scores. Some of his most noteworthy soundtracks from this period, including those presented here, were released on the Ayna label, which gave him full artistic freedom.” - Cinedelic.

Title: Messico
Format: LP
Label: Cinedelic
Country: Italy
Price: $33.00
"Cinedelic Records present a reissue of Egisto Macchis Messico, recorded in 1975. Limited numbered edition. Includes insert and download code. The artistic achievement of Egisto Macchi was avant-garde, not only for his immense talent and brilliance of his creativity, but for the quality he managed to infuse every musical language with - ranging from instrumental and symphonic music, musical theater, library sound, more varied and articulated. Towering over all of his works is his passion, commitment, respect and great inner need to break down the sectarian walls of thinking in categories. He had sensed that beauty could be located anywhere and that the biggest task entrusted to an artist was to leave the surface, always. Messico was originally released on the Ayna label." - Cinedelic.
