Dynamic 1970 lp, originally co-released by the “Municipalidad de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires”, the “Secretaria de Cultura” and the “ls 1 Radio Municipal de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires” in a tiny internally-distributed edition, consisting of four extended pieces by Argentinian composers Hilda Dianda, Nelly Moretto, and Luis María Serra from the tail-end of the 1950s through the end of the 1960s.

Hilda Dianda’s opening piece “a-7” – …a lone cello plucks out an atonal array of notes with the eruption of tape-sound. On her “Dos Estudios en Oposición” the tape-sounds are left to themselves.

On the “flip”, Nelly Moretto introduces her “Composición 9b”, a creepy blend of spoken word/sound-poetry with filtered noise and extensive tape processing, occasionally piling up into a giant jumble of disembodied voices; a spectral choir.

Finally, Luis María Serra’s “Invocation” works a few dissonant plucked guitar notes & string-scrapes into a powerfull morass of shifting pings and grinding metal; a notable guitar/electronic forebear.

Anar Band (Portugal) was a project by Jorge Lima Barreto (1949), who had been performing interventions in experimental and jazz music, video art and performance-art since the late sixties; graduated in Art History and doctorate in Musicology and Social Communication Theory, he wrote several books and produced radio shows.

Anar Band was a laboratorial group for improvisations, in the aesthetics of the free-jazz and electroacoustics.

Produced and recorded in 1976, Anar Band was, on an electroacoustic profile, the first Portuguese record of improvised music, clearly committed as such.Formed by Jorge Lima Barreto (who would be from 1981 onwards one of the halves of Telectu, the other being Vítor Rua) and Rui Reininho (later the lead singer with avant-garde pop group GNR), this is a true trip into the inner realms of the mind, fuelled by jazz rock leanings and electronics – the ARP Odyssey synthesizer also reminds us that from here to prog rock is sometimes a small step.

This is a truly original work of art.
