The least known and rarest musical exploration of Ennio Morricone's career. He played trumpet in the extraordinary Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza from 1965 when it was founded by composer Franco Evangelisti.

These lengthy improvised sound collages are challenging to listen to but have their own beauty and are of serious historical importance. Gruppo recorded albums for RCA Italia and Cinevox to 1975 including under Morricone's auspices, soundtracks for the trippy "Gli Occhi Freddi Della Paura" and "Un Tranquillo posto di Campagna" where their improvised 35 minute suite mirrored the formal score.
