Holiday Records presents a reissue of Trio Prosodico (1978) by Arrigo Lora-Totino. Arrigo Lora-Totino is considered one of the fathers of Italian sound poetry. He's mostly known for having curated the anthology Futura: Poesia Sonora (1978), where he collected the voices of the most interesting sound poets of the twentieth century, but also for being a key figure in the Italian experimental poetry. Active since the late sixties, he gave more than 200 performances of "Gymnastic Poetry" and "Liquid Poetry" (using the Idromegaphone, a tool invented on purpose to let the voice sound through water) and a series of mimic declamations of avant-garde texts, from futurism to dadaism, Russian 'zaum, expressionism, surrealism, lettrisme and concretism. This sound poem in six movements - performed as a vocal trio together with Sergio Cena and Laura Santiano - was recorded in 1976 in Torino at Studio di Informazione Estetica (S.I.E.) and is considered by the author himself one of his most important works. First volume in a series of sound poetry releases on Holiday Records coordinated by Luca Garino. Comes in a deluxe edition with the complete reproduction of the handwritten original scores. Edition of 250.
