2008 deluxe CD box edition of Die Schachtel's first vinyl release ever (2003), finally giving a wider audience the opportunity to listen to some of the most intense compositions from this visionary and uncompromising composer. Includes a 24-page booklet with notes in English and Italian, plus historic photos. Minimalist before the Minimalists, pioneer of Computer Music, founder of the Studio of Phonology of Florence, visual artist and hacker ahead of his time. This was Pietro Grossi, a larger-than-life Italian composer who questioned the concept of musical authorship and the idea of personal artistic expression: "A piece is not only a work (of art), but also one of the many 'works' one can freely transform: everything is temporary, everything can change at any time."
"Ideas are not personal anymore, they are open to every solution, everybody could use them."
