Double LP of Material from Italian Composer Roberto Music's Solo Recordings Commencing with the Loa of Music Sessions from 1984 Up Until Later Very Recent Works!

Music From Memory returns with their penultimate release of 2016, this time bringing together a compilation of works by the Italian composer and musician Roberto Musci. While studying guitar and saxophone in his hometown of Milan, Musci developed a deep fascination for non-western music and set out to travel across India, Asia and Africa, which he would do extensively between 1974-1985. During his many journeys Roberto would become deeply embedded in each unique world of rhythms, scales and approaches to making and performing music. Throughout this period of travel he would make many field recordings as well as collect and study many traditional and indigenous instruments that he would later combine with synthesizers and electronics on his return to Italy.

Combining personal documents of music and sounds deeply connected to history and cultures of those lands, with his own explorations and experiments with cutting edge sound technology Musci would develop through his music a very unique and at time wholly mystical space, where ancient and modern would evolve into a new musical language. As well as making his own music, during the '80s and '90s Roberto would also regularly broadcast radio shows of experimental and indigenous music on Italian radio stations such as Rai and Radio Popolare. Deeply connected to the arts he would also compose and perform numerous pieces of music for theatre, dance and performance art pieces as well as soundtracks for film and television.

Tower of Silence brings together a double LP of material from Roberto Music's solo recordings commencing with the Loa of Music sessions from 1984 up until later very recent works. The compilation also includes a number of collaborative pieces, many performed and written in collaboration with Giovanni Venosa, such as material taken from their Water Messages on Desert Sand, which as an album was Grammy-nominated in the UK in 1987. A unique and at times intensely mesmerizing musical world Tower of Silence offers an introduction to the work of a unique and visionary artist.
