PRIMA MATERIA

LA CODA DELLA TIGRE

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV191

Prima Materia was a vocal improvisation ensemble,
founded by Roberto Laneri in 1973. Composed entirely
of vocalists with no academic training, the group developed
various techniques—revolving mostly around the use
of overtones—that would embody their unique sound.
No instruments nor electronic manipulations were ever
employed within the group’s physiognomy, which was
realized purely through the human voice.
La Coda Della Tigre, the group’s sole album, was
recorded in 1977 by Alvin Curran and released on Ananda,
an artist-run label founded by Laneri, Curran and Giacinto
Scelsi.
As the original liner notes state, “The music of Prima
Materia may sound radically new, yet at the same time it is
likely to ring some distant bell and evoke ancient emotions.
This is not due to chance: indeed, the very name of the
group points to a specific path, namely, the unfolding of the
potential implicit in the alchemical symbol as embodying a
process of transmutation of consciousness.”
Prima Materia’s four members (Laneri, Claudio
Ricciardi, Gianni Nebbiosi and Susanne Hendricks)
combine voices to create a singular, beautiful drone that is
(as the group’s name suggests) both impossible to define
and fundamentally simple.
This first-time standalone reissue is recommended for
fans of La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Disques Ocora
