Arrigo Lora-Totino (Torino, 1928) is considered one of the fathers of Italian sound poetry. He's mostly known for having curated the anthology "Futura: Poesia Sonora" (cramps records, 1978), where he collected the voices of the most interesting sound poets of the twentieth century, but also for being a key figure in the Italian experimental poetry. Active since the late sixties, he gave more than 200 performances of gymnastic poetry and liquid poetry (using the idromegaphone, a tool invented on purpose to let the voice sound through water) and a series of mimic declamations of avant-garde texts, from futurism to Dadaism, Russian Zaum, expressionism, surrealism, lettrisme and concretism. This sound poem in six movements - performed as a vocal trio together with Sergio Cena and Laura Santiano - was recorded in 1976 in Torino at Studio Di Informazione Estetica (s.i.e.) and is considered by the author himself one of his most important works. First volume in a series of sound poetry releases coordinated by Luca Garino, comes in a deluxe edition with the complete reproduction of the handwritten original scores. Limited to 250 black copies.
