Label: Tzadik    
Released in: USA    

"Focusing on his remarkable relationship with the legendary cinematic poet Maya Deren, Tzadik's third Teiji Ito release highlights his versatile and evocative music for films. Included are two major Deren scores and recently discovered music for a rare film she scripted alongside pieces written for industrial films, documentaries, dance films and the avant-garde. Much of this remarkable collection is being released for the first time through the cooperation of the Ito estate. Includes an extended booklet filled with scores, storyboards, photos, notes and a rare interview Maya Deren conducted with Teiji Ito in the late 1950's. A fascinating view into the early groundbreaking work of an American maverick seen through the lens of his muse and wife, filmmaker Maya Deren."-Tzadik
