Born in Argentina but resident in Colombia, Angel Beccasino is a multifaceted artist, writer, photographer, advertising agent and musician. From the early 80s onwards, and thanks to his success as an advertising executive, he financed a series of highly personal projects that disconcerted many listeners. This includes La Banda Dispersa de la Madre Selva, a musical experimentation ensemble, with collaborations from friends from across the world. Ethnic and Fluxus sound actions blend together with elements of rock and jazz, popular song and sound collage. Beccasino has been described as a nomad, not just because of his multidisciplinary approach to his work but also because of his geographical reach. He is fascinated by the power to disconcert and amaze, seasoning his work with doses of eccentricity and dandyism. 'Aquel país del horizonte sin límites', on his album "La colonización del silencio", is a good portrait of the imaginary and geographical breadth that Becassino reaches in his music.

And imagination is perhaps what connects more closely all the artists brought together here for the first time. Because all of them needed to imagine a new space, where they could forge a new scene that punk and technology would go on to consolidate. All these artists did things for the first time, they represent the breaking point between clearly defined periods, despite the difficulties and isolation that many suffered when creating their compositions. Now we can listen to them on this compilation which allows us to imagine a time in the past when this other avant-garde music scene exploded.
