Punteggiata nei giorni scorsi da vari eventi con musica dal vivo, incontri e presentazioni, chiude oggi alla Red Gallery di Londra la nuova esposizione - dopo quelle presso Tenderbooks l'anno scorso, sempre a Londra, e al Sonos a New York lo scorso aprile - dei materiali d'archivio della gloriosa rivista Musics, recuperati recentemente in un corposo volume edito da Ecstatic Peace Library.

Musics was published, from 1975 to 1979, by musicians and artists on the London scene of free improvisation, focusing on the most innovative participants of their generation. Steve Beresford, David Toop, Annabel Nicholson, Evan Parker, David Cunningham, Lindsay Cooper, Eddie Prevost, John Russell, Derek Bailey, Valerie Wilmer, Hugh Davies, Peter Riley and many, many others contributed to the writing, graphics and photography. Musics was a blueprint for the interdisciplinary activities of sound art, field recording, free improvisation, live electronics, 20th century composition and audio culture. It came out six times a year and ran for twenty-three hand-assembled issues.
