Happy Spring!

title: Galiola, Works For Radio 1967-2000
format: CD
links: www.and-oar.org/pop_and_all2.html

At long last, after a split release with composer Ivana Stefanovic
in 1993 (on ORF), and a first solo release on Eric La Casa's La 
Légende Des Voix label in 1994, and/OAR (in collaboration with 
FO A RM Publications and Alluvial Recordings) is simply elated to 
release a second solo CD of previously unreleased work by Serbian 
composer/film, television and theatre director Arsenije Jovanovic!

Two samples from this release are now available on the a/O Radio
page and on the a/O MySpace page. The info page for the release
only has one sample at this time.

>From what sound like theatrical Fellini Satyricon-like extravaganzas
(although predating Satyricon by two years), haunting phantasmic 
dronescapes, to near pastoral epiphanies of childhood and the 
imagination of innocence, the dynamic range and mood of the 
work presented here is impressive, and it's well apparent that he's 
drawn upon his experience with directing for film, television and 
theatre; however Jovanovic's mastery of composition, weaving 
field recordings, concrete sounds, voices and instruments is still
nothing short of astonishing.

When presented with this work for a possible joint release by 
Seth Nehil of FO A RM Publications, it was hard to fathom how 
it had gone unreleased over the past 30 years. With the exception 
of one track ("Prophecy Of The Village Kremma" which was used 
in the film "The Thin Red Line"), the only way that people could 
hear this work were if they had just happened to catch a rare 
radio broadcast in Serbia (former Yugoslavia), France or 
Italy, for which the works were created (hence the title), or if
they attended a festival where the music may have been

And so it is my hope to open people's minds and expose Arsa 
Jovanovic's work to a much larger audience of which it truly 
deserves. Copies of his first solo release are still available in
the and/OAR Diffusion shop, so if you are not yet acquainted 
with Arsa's work, now would be a great time to immerse yourself
in two collections of his work while copies are still available, 
and at and/OAR prices.

Thanks very much for your time!
