various - Prix Italia: The Prix Italia and Radiophonic Experimentation
*Lavish, epic 6CD/Book box set exploring the best radiophonic art realized by the RAI (the National Italian broadcasting company) in the second half of the Twentieth Century, a homage to the Milan RAI Studio di Fonologia, the seminal electronic laboratory founded in the 1950's and where all the featured works included were originally realized. Includes 5 hours of recordings, plus a 400 page book in English and Italian, packaged in a deluxe foil embossed box - a must for Radiophonic fiends!* After five years of intense, passionate and sometimes painful work, Die Schachtel (in collaboration with RAI) is proud to announce the release of the long-awaited massive Book+6CDs boxed edition dedicated to some of the most compelling Italian radio works which took part in the prestigious Prix Italia, a world-famous contest established by the RAI (the National Italian broadcasting company) in the early Sixties and still well alive today, aimed to award the best and most uncompromising audio-visual produced throughout the world. PRIX ITALIA offers a significant overview of the best radiophonic art realized by the RAI in the second half of the Twentieth Century, and at the same time stands as an hommage to the Milan RAI Studio di Fonologia, the electronic laboratory where all the featured works were originally realized. The set includes seven original radio plays – some of them previously unreleased – which entered the competition from 1961 to 1981, complete with two audio interviews to some of the participants. The works have been taken from the original RAI tapes, carefully restored and impeccably re-mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi, making them a splendid listening experience. The accompanying 400 pages book (in Italian and English) features seven essays written by some of the most prominent experts in this field, plus a long interview with Mr. Sermonti and the complete transcriptions (again in Italian and English) of all the featured works. Curated with passion and a painstaking attention to detail by Angela Ida De Benedictis and Maddalena Novati (authors of the celebrated New Music at the Radio and Nine Oscillatorsbooks, both devoted to the Rai Studio di Fonologia), the enclosed book take advantage of the impeccable English translation by Mr.Mark Weir and the fascinating (yet reader-respectful) design by Dinamomilano, making it an essential reading to understand in depth the musical and semiological aspects of these outstanding works, composed and realized by some of the greatest geniuses of modern Italian music.
