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, however out of the many submissions
received, only the featured pieces were selected for this release. The artists
were given free license to create work inspired by the late great film director.
Both the CD and online projects were planned and initiated in June, 2007 -  
three months before his passing (September, 2007), thereby making the
launching of both projects more timely, moving and poignant than they might
have been otherwise.

This release was originally divided into two "sides" to mimic a double disc
release (hence the numbering system included in the track titles). Therefore,
it is highly recommended that the album be listened to in its intended track
order the first time.

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.
