Not only an exciting CD of contemporary music, with first recordings of works by
Luciano Berio, Iannis Xenakis, Sylvano Bussotti and Salvatore Sciarrino. Not
only an exclusive and wonderful cover card signed by the american artist Sol
LeWitt. Even more is that this is the first CD exposed in the Museum of Modern
Art (MOMA), New York. It is the first CD of a special series involving art and
music (the next CD in this series: music by Boulez and Berio with a cover
exclusively signed by the famous italian painter Pistoletto).

When first produced, this CD was available in 100 exemplaries housed in a
wooden box with the original litography signed by Sol LeWitt (as pictured in our
catalogue, page 2).
