Below is a commentary by the label.

"SMET - Studio di Musica Elettronica was born in Turin in 1964 from the idea of ​​Enore Zaffiri. Initially, the studio used rudimentary equipment and at the same time spread the knowledge of this avant-garde musical field through meetings and auditions. The aim was to develop a unique sound experience.The approach to the new equipment followed a rigorous research method with a structuralist approach, and was developed in the ``Studio di Informazione Aesthetica'' (Aesthetic). There was a close relationship with visual operators centered on Information Studio). In 1966, an experimental electronic music course was established for young musicians and university students interested in musical experimentation.

In 1968, the Italian Ministry of Education approved the establishment of an experimental course in electronic music at the "G. Verdi" Conservatory in Turin. In 1970/71, with the advent of the synthesizer, a radical change in methodology and ideology occurred. The synthesizer has become an ideal bridge between electronic music and the musical arts of the past. With the help of Ellen Kappel, the electronically unprocessed voice facilitated the fusion of the oldest and most modern instruments. Its activities spanned a variety of fields, including concerts, musical theater, ballet, film, and videotape.

The year this (now ultra-rare) record was published was a turning point in the evolution of electronic music in Italy. In 1972, Armando Gentilucci's Introduction to Electronic Music was published by the famous publisher Feltrinelli. During this period, Pietro Grossi, Enole Zaffiri and Teresa Rampazzi had the opportunity to gain their most important compositional experience. They engaged in various activities, such as exchanging works, collaborating with each other, participating in traveling exhibitions, traveling, writing and organizing broadcasts, and the release of this vinyl became a turning point in the evolution of electronic music in Italy. Ta.

The ideology that Zaffiri and SMET shared is clearly summarized in Musica Elettronica / Computer Music 1966-1972. Electronic music, with its precise control over sound and form, is the only way to break free from the constraints of traditional composition and instrumental mastery. It is an experimental endeavor that can only be achieved through a spirit of inquiry and collaboration. Musica Elettronica / Computer Music, released in 1972, features the unmistakable sound of the iconic EMS VCS3 synthesizer and tones generated by an IBM 360 computer, and was released on several copies at Phonit Setra Studios. Only privately pressed. This stunning piece soon became one of the rarest and most sought-after Italian avant-garde electronic LPs of its time. "
