Beginning in the 1950's, renowned artist Harry Bertoia created beautiful metal sculptures which, when activated, create shimmering ambient drones. He then assembled a massive, harmonious orchestra of these sculptures and called it Sonambient.
Bertoia self released his first album in 1970 and in 1978, after being diagnosed with terminal cancer, selected 10 more recordings. He didn't live long enough to see the records but they became legendary (and quite valuable) in the art/sound world.
In 2016 Important Records released an 11 CD box set collecting all 11 of Harry Bertoia's original Sonambient records in replica packaging with a 80 page book of essays and photos.
This will be a one time pressing of 500 copies unless we get additional funding and can afford a pressing size of 1000 copies.
Gold vinyl option is a Kickstarter exclusive.
