"alga marghen very proudly presents 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. A method for perfecting oneself in composition annotated and commented upon by Gabriele Bonomo.
'The most amazing thing about music is its exterior aspect. High, vertical, translucent, almost turgid, maybe a bit too monolithic. One should, in any case, give a lot of attention to the large number of interstices which lead to the centre of the ear, wherefrom sounds spread out through a dense network leading to more circuits which direct these same and their relationships directly to the brain, in a logic of musical articulation which is nothing less than frightening. Even if, to attentive listening, dominating all is the eye of silence.'
The 180-page De Musica Inversa book is published in both English and Italian. First included in an LP sized 4CD box set together with other 4 CDs titled La Caccia, In Terram Utopicam, Natura Morta and Vandalia, this book is also available now, separately from the complete box set, in a very limited number of copies."-alga marghen
