The Talea Ensemble presents 5 works from the late Italian composer Fausto Romitelli who's work blends the sonic experiments of spectralism with psychedelic rock, hybridizations of art and popular music.

Romitelli, Fausto

Romitelli, Fausto:  Anamorphosis

Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Romitelli was born in 1963 and died tragically in 2004 after a long illness. He studied in Italy with Donatoni, and later at IRCAM with the spectralists. His work blends the sonic experiments of spectralism with psychedelic rock in the kind of hybridization of art and popular music more common of the New York Downtown scene. His work is wild and exciting, and often combines acoustic and electric instruments with other bizarre sound sources creating a hallucinatory atmosphere. The Talea Ensemble presents five works in world premiere recordings. An exciting debut CD by one of America's greatest experimental classical ensembles."-Tzadik
