The otherworldly recordings Harry Bertoia made on his self-designed sound sculptures had become largely unavailable over the years, a situation somewhat rectified by Important Records’ recent Sonambient boxset.
This new CD/DVD combo makes a more affordable introduction to Bertoia’s work, while being absolutely essential for anyone already hooked. The DVD contains a 1971 documentary showing the artist performing on his sculptures in his Pennsylvania barn. The accompanying audio disc features newly uncovered 1969 recordings on which Harry is joined by brother Oreste and sister Ave. If you’re a fan of drone, sound art, ambient or electronic music, this is not to be missed.
