2010 release. Alga Marghen very proudly presents the only authorized reissue of all Walter Marchetti's original recordings previously released by Cramps Records. The recording of La Caccia, one of the most radical in the neo-avant-garde panorama for 35 years, is divided in two tracks: "Versione All'aria Aperta" and "Versione Per Uno Spazio Chiuso." The sound is generated by hunting calls for birds and other animals. According to Steven Stapleton, this is one of the best records ever published. The CD includes "La Caccia" (1965) as well as two extreme electronic ZAJ pieces, "Adversus" (Home-made electric music) (1966) and "Osmanthus fragrans" (Home-made electric music) (1973). The 16-page booklet presents the original scores, photos of both the 1965 ZAJ performances and of Marchetti recording La Caccia in the 1970s, photos of the concert at Galleria Multhipla in 1974, and the reproduction of the original La Caccia LP layout. All texts are published both in English and Italian. First included in an LP-sized 4CD box set together with three other CDs titled In Terram Utopicam, Natura Morta and Vandalia, plus the new book by Walter Marchetti titled De Musica Inversa, an instruction manual of both theory and practice for the proper and improper use of music, this CD is also available now, separately from the complete box set, in a very limited number of copies.
