Italian avant-garde and film composer Egisto Macchi (1928-1992) produced a large and largely forgotten catalogue of astounding music during the 1960s and 1970s. At the crest of that incredible body of work stands ‘Voix’ - an LP of intense contrasts – haunting, dissonant choirs collide with dexterous musique concrete manipulations and other worldly soundscapes while guitars buzz and strings scrape violently. The world of ‘Voix’ is a frightening and beautiful place. There are echoes here of Macchi’s friend and famous collaborator (in the avant composer’s collective ‘Il Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza’) Ennio Morricone, yet Egisto Macchi existed in a musical universe truly all his own, and the time for a reappraisal of this undiscovered cosmology has surely come.Presented as an exact replica of the incredibly rare 1970 Gemelli library LP, remastered from the original master tapes and complete with scholarly liner notes as an insert. Some consider Egisto Macchi to be an unheralded genius…and here is more evidence.

I never thought I'd hear something as solid and unique as Ennio Morricone's best stuff, but this is definitely up there! A weird mix of ambient avant-garde classical, ghost voices, tribal rhythms, "giallo" guitars, FXed freeform improv and textures. A real gem. Psychedelic and haunting, melodic and dissonant, a very rich universe full of contrast.
