This morning the glorious new book and CD release:


released on the RER megacorp label from the UK.A Double CD and beautiful hardback book release.

This morning the reconstructions and next program original recordings .  I have chosen works which are in my opinion the most sonically interesting.  They vary in duration from11 seconds to 28 minutes.It Was a very  important and little-known vibrant, colourful and inspiring period of the 20th-century avant-garde art, music and poetry.The Programs will be sketches from the Russian avant-garde through the work of the poets, musicians and conceptualists.  Before and after the Russian  industrial Revolution of 1917.  It was centred around Russian futurism and its many offshoots.  Many more movements than the avant-garde elsewhere in the world.

Interestingly there were the futurist elements in the writing of in  1908 a year before the futurist manifesto of Marinetti in Italy.Italian futurism was widely covered in the Russian mediaand in 1914 marinetti was invited to Moscow to speak.  He was mocked and there was a call for rotten eggs to be thrown at him.Because he had betrayed the original principles he had portrayed.  This criticism came principally from Cubofuturists(to differentiate them from the Italian futurists) such as the poet mayakovsky and the founder of Russian futurism David Burliuk.  Marinetti in turn called the Russian futurists psuedofuturists and said that one of the poets was from the Stone Age.They Wanted to eliminate the separation of past, present and future exploring their own Slavic roots as a meeting of the universal and the future. The reconstructions, recordings and new versions are by Miguel Molina and Leopoldo amigo and recorded between 2003 and 2007.
