***When psycho-spatial composer NELSON GASTALDI passed away in 2009 at the age of 77, he left behind a unique musical legacy that is only now beginning to be unveiled. A self-described “musical nihilist with noble and mystic origins” (as well as an accomplished visual artist), Gastaldi supported himself and his family with a job at an electric company in Buenos Aires, Argentina, while creating an astonishing body of work that went virtually unheard during his lifetime. Synthesizing into his music a wide range of interests (medicine, linguistics, Chinese and German philosophy), he welcomed paranormal and initiatic experiences into the compositional process, creating homemade Sibelius-meets-Sun Ra symphonies. The only previous publication of his work was in Bananafish #18, which featured an excerpt of Symphony No. 3 on an accompanying CD. The same issue also contains his sole English-language interview, where he says, “The human being runs at the side of a river. When he is young, he runs faster than the river; in mid-life he runs at the same speed as the river; and at last he falls down and the river keeps going.” Download coupon included.
