“Since 1939, news of [Carlo Domenico Valyum] has become evermore a mystery. Some documents testify to his presence in various places at the same time, creating a sometimes confused map with many question marks but confirming his ability of physical and temporal bilocation. At the end of August 2014, in Berlin, the existence of the briefcase containing the material intercepted in 1937, recorded on to VHS in the 70s, is casually discovered. And what is immediately clear is that Carlo Domenico Valyum in February 1937 had intercepted and further recorded electromagnetic waves coming from future Italian television broadcasts over a period of time between 1976 up until December 9, 1989, the day before his alleged death.” – Press statement for Cronovisione Italiana.
The other track of note that was played on the Seventy Fourth Edition was a group who are new to me: Langham Research Centre. They use older methods, inspired by the great BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Really interesting album is TAPE WORKS VOL. 1.
