"These two CDs and 72 page clothbound book embody, for the first time, a comprehensive presentation of the experiments and innovations in the exploration of sound by the historical Russian avant-gardes constructed around the sounds themselves, a full documentation of these sound experiments, fully annotated, alongside original recordings and painstakingly thorough reconstructions of lost events and productions. The form is groundbreaking: this is not a book with sonic illustrations, nor is it a rather excessively annotated set of CDs; it's an aural record, and thorough overview, of a transient field of works otherwise mostly lost. feat. Alexander Mossolov, Julius Meytuss, Roman Jakobson, Velimir Khlebnikov, Alexei Kruchenykh, Vladimir Mayakovsky, David Burliuk, Malevich, Vasily Kamensky, Semen Kirsanov, Anatoly Lunacharsky, Alexandra Kollontay, H2SO4 Group, Boris Pasternak, etc etc." (label info)
