THE ART OF DURATION AND RESONANCE: The experimental stages of Italian electronic music
by Philippe Blache
available on Lulu and Amazon

The book, taking into account the pioneers of Italian experimental music (as Pietro Grossi, Luigi Russolo or the collectives Nuova Consonanza, Materia Prima and Insieme Musica Diversa), explores the deeper aspects of the experience of Maurizio Bianchi/MB and some of those who recently collaborated with him, as Andrea Marutti, Giuseppe Verticchio, Matteo Uggeri,
