My review from Audion magazine

ISTVÁN MÁRTHA
TÁMAD A SZÉL
(RéR SD1) CD 36m
Above are the true credits (artist and title) of this album as it was originally released on Krém Records (Hungary) back in 1987. Not that you'll find this credited as such in the RéR catalogue, and not that I realised what it was at first when I went to put it on. You see, the cover and everything with this CD reissue has been "Englishified", and in the process it seems that someone forgot that this is an István Mártha album. I assure you that it is! The original LP (of which the cover is duplicated on pages 14 and 15 of the CD booklet) clearly has Istvan's name in large text, and after-all he is also the main performer and composer!
Well, in case you're confused, let's rectify that. The cover bills the album as thus, artist: Electropleinair Sound Diary, and title: THE WIND RISES (which is TÁMAD A SZÉL in English). So, if you're ordering from RéR (or someone uninformed) look-out for that!
István Mártha is something of a legend in Hungarian new-music, writing some of the best material for luminary percussion ensemble Amadinda (who are featured here), Group 180, and others. Yet whilst most of what he's known for is systemic music this is not. TÁMAD A SZÉL is something else! This 1987 album was intended as the first part of a series of works, the "Electropleinair Sound Diary" - an ongoing ambitious multi-media project. I believe, however, that this was the only completed album, and it's long been a favourite of mine. Featuring some 25 guests and a symphony orchestra - it's very ambitious - abridging folk, chamber-classical and avant-garde musics in a manner occasionally very close to late-70's Art Zoyd. But that's an over-simplification, as this is an extraordinary mixture of electronic and acoustic musics (avant-garde, rock, jazz, folk, classical - you name it it's in there) in a concoction that cannot be pigeon-holed. Fusing poetry, theatrics, and a diverse unfathomable amount of conflicting styles, István has it all woven into a dynamic evolutive suite that continually mystifies and occasionally startles. And some!
Apart from the confused presentation, I'm glad to see this reissued. The concept is elusive, but becomes a little clearer with the CD booklet's English translation. So that's one consolation. An esoteric yet powerful classic. It's also great to hear it now, pure and clear, sans record crackle. A treat!
