Musikautomatika was an electronic music ensemble founded in 1977 by Luis Levin, Alvise Sachi and Stefano Grammito. Levin is Argentinian and the other two of Italian origin, and they formed arguably the most stable group dedicated to electronic free improvisation in Latin America, inspired by the work of the Italian group Musica Elettronica Viva. They released three albums independently and arranged the Encuentro de Nueva Música Electrónica, in Venezuela, which was a ground-breaking event in Latin America given its radical nature. Musikautomatika used open composition forms, in a nod to surrealist automatism, and sessions went on for hours in Levin’s personal studio, where previously recorded sounds were processed in three separate locations, together with others generated by synthesizers and a host of other sounds played live, enhanced by abundant echo effects, making the music a truly psychedelic experience. The group also used sounds from video projections that it used to display in its shows.
