about

3 CD BOX SET
The monumental set 'What Space Is Made For' has been recorded in their secret base on the Western Alps, and unlike MCIAA's previous works, it's mostly made of short pieces and songs. In addition to their (un)usual instrumentation (electric and acoustic guitars, space toys, percussion), MCIAA have self-made, modified, and assembled / disassembled primitive electronic equipment. So the result may sound their most 'experimental' as well as their most 'accessible' work to date.

The Box includes booklet with full liner notes, credits and an appositely written introduction to the work by Roberto Opalio.

"This triple box set is their latest magnum opus" - THE WIRE
