Boomkat product review for:

various / die schachtel - Musica Improvvisa

A unique survey of Italy's improvised music scene, this immense boxset features ten full-length discs of experimental sounds from ten different improv groups spread right across the country, plus a further DVD of visual scores from one of the bands (Xubuxue). Each CD gets its own individual sleeve, which along with a 24-page booklet and a poster slot into a sturdy cardboard holder. Sifting through this huge project would probably take over the rest of your summer, but even the most fleeting scan through the set reveals some real gems and a consistently high standard throughout (as you'll by now have come to expect from Die Schachtel). Furthermore, this is far from being a single-minded trudge through any one particular musical style. While the various components of Musica Improvvisa are united in their pursuit of extremes and the outer limits of the avant-garde, there's a great diversity to the collection; expect to encounter a wide variety of sound sources, from classical and jazz instrumentation through to computer-driven sonorities. For your reference, here's a list of the groups lined up on this fabulously exhausting boxset, in alphabetical order: A Spirale, Amp2, Amuleto, An Experiment In Navigation, Ligatura, Ossatura, Thau, Tumble, Wintermute and Xubuxue.
