Dimensioni Sonore - Limited Collector Edition Red Vinyl
Warning: Last items in stock!
Widely celebrated and easily among the most ambitious and beautiful endeavors of 2020, the "Dimensioni Sonore" box is truly a stunning thing to behold. Thankfully, Dialogo has repressed this wonder in a brand-new edition of 250 copies on red vinyl.
This edition comes complete with 10LPs on red vinyl, 10CDs, a 40-page LP-sized book in English, an exclusive large poster, screen-printed tote, all housed in a handmade (in Italy) custom lavish linen box.
Among the most important figures in 20th Century Italian music, Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai each forged distinct and unexpected creative paths that were entirely tuned to the eras through which they worked; radical and forward-thinking composers, who activated vast new worlds of possibility via the mediums of film and television. Morricone has long held legendary status for his soundtrack and library music work, as well as his explicitly avant-garde and experimental endeavors within the seminal collective, Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, but Dimensioni Sonore - a sprawling body of recordings originally issued by RCA in 1972 - holds equal distinction as a historically prescient illumination into the slightly lesser-known efforts of Nicolai, and the groundbreaking importance of his work.
It also contains original liner notes include writings by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Sergio Leone, Elio Petri, Giuliano Montaldo, and Gillo Pontecorvo, and a new article by renowned musicologist Maurizio Corbella exploring in detail this edition.
Carefully remastered from the original analog tapes by Claudio Fuiano and Daniel Winkler and coming in a lavish presentation, this is an essential release that fully showcases the state of the art of Library Music in Italy during the early '70s, and nothing less than a timeless masterpiece.
