Limited 200gm vinyl LP pressing with exclusive liner notes by Alvin Lucia, rarely seen photos and newly commissioned inner sleeve artwork. Full dynamic range 2015 remaster direct from the first generation analogue master tapes. First ever commercial release for this Holy Grail 1972 LP of brooding avant orchestral, abstract percussion and analogue synth genius. Special guest appearances from Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza and Edda Dell'Orso. Controfase is an unknown (and almost lost) masterpiece. A shadowed giant of compositional skill and deft application - a moment when all the stars and their cycles align - unique, harmonious, undeniably perfect. From Walter Branchi's skeletal web of processed VCS3 duetting with mournful violin, to Egoisto Macchi's demonstrative percussion jousting Edda Dell'Orso's breathless siren's call, Morricone and Nicolai have crafted a radiant, forbidden jewel.
