"The genesis of this work is incredible. In the office where I worked, I had found a stamp with written 'COMPRESA' (in English, included), and so I came to the starting point for a faced experimental work. Erasing before the second, fourth, sixth and eighth letter, so I obtained the title 'CMRS', on the other hand by deleting the first, third, fifth and seventh letter, I obtained the title 'OPEA', and it fascinated me. I had recently bought a synth KORG MS20 and so I began to experiment with it, but having only one output jack, I had to connect it to a cassette recorder plate AKAI that had two inputs, so the inevitable consequence was a mono recording (something that was strictly maintained, but divided on 2 channels). The result that followed was a cassette format C-90, with very grim and voluptuous electronic sounds, and it was distributed only to a very few friends and followers. All this happened back in October 1980. Then this recording had virtually untraceable, until a few years ago when I was in contact with Vittore Baroni who wrote me that he had a recording that I had given him several years ago, precisely 'CMRS/OPEA'! So this work is of historical value that will surely make happy a lot of my genuine fans." (Maurizio Bianchi - February 07, 2015)
