The genesis of this work is incredible.
In the office where I used to work I found a stamp with the word ‘’COMPRESA’’ ("Included" for English) and so I came to the starting point for a faced experiment.
Erasing the second, fourth, sixth and eighth letter I obtained the title ‘’CMRS’’, than by deleting the first, third, fifth and seventh letter, I obtained the title ‘’OPEA’’ , this fascinated me.
I had recently bought a synth KORG MS20 and so I began experimenting with it but having only one output jack I had to connect it to my AKAI cassette-recorder that had two inputs, the inevitable consequence was a mono recording (something this was even strictly maintained, but divided on 2 channels).
The result that followed was a C90 cassette with very grim and voluptuous electronic sounds.
The tape was distributed only to a very few friends and followers.
All this happened back in October 1980.
Then this recording had virtually desapeared until a few years back when I was in contact with Vittore Baroni who wrote me that he had a copy of ‘’CMRS/OPEA’’.
This work is of absolute historical value.
It will surely make happy a lot of my genuine fans.
