This is an online companion project for the Antonioni double CD release
entitled "Michelangelo Antonioni - Trilogy And Epilogue" (
and/36 ), and is
intended to serve as a general homage. The works featured on this project  
were solicited via public invitation. The artists were given free license to
create work inspired by the late great film director, however out of all the
submissions sent, only the ones featured here were chosen. Both the CD
and online projects were planned and initiated (in June, 2007) three months
before his passing in September of the same year, thereby making the
launching of both projects all the more timely and poignant...

While downloading and listening to each track is an option, it is highly
suggested that the entire release be downloaded and listened to in its
proper order, so that the intended flow can be experienced.

Rare Frequency  (December 2008)
The lovely and/OAR record label, which is devoted to releasing sound art
based around found sounds as well as CDs of pure location recordings, has
just released a free mp3 compilation. Titled
Translations of Opacity - For
Michelangelo Antonioni
, the collection features twenty-three understated
tracks made in homage to the late Italian director. The artists are largely
unfamiliar (with some notable exceptions, of course), but there is a lot of
wonderful work here. Ethereal, yet concrète — perfect listening for a cold
evening.
