Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza

Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza: 1967-1975 (Edition Rz)
Label: Edition Rz    
Released in: Germany    

"Il Gruppo was a brilliant and prolific composer's collective exploring extended techniques and new sound sources through the medium of improvisation. Although very much a product of its time, their music remains timeless. They were instrumental in founding a radical tradition of western musical improvisation that owed little or nothing to anybody and created some of the strangest music ever made. They were utterly unique."-John Zorn, NYC 2006
