REISSUE - Selten Gehörte Musik is a group project by artists from the Wiener Gruppe; Gerhard Rühm, Oswald Wiener, and Dieter Roth, who gathered together in Berlin in the 1970s after leaving Vienna, in part, because of scandals incited by their art. The project began as a spontaneous form of musical interaction born during their workshops which, without being restricted to any one field of the arts, fostered creative production of a totally pleasure-oriented kind. Initially, it was just recorded on audiotape, but by 1974 they began to make public appearances in collaboration with the Vienna Actionists, and other artist friends. Selten Gehörte Musik can be viewed as an early example of the free, and in part intentionally dilettantish interplay of avant-garde artists, blurring art mediums, sound, and performance into their works. 

This is the second in a series of reissues of the legendary Selten Gehörte Musik records by Tochnit Aleph. This is a reissue of the Novembersymphonie (Doppelsymphonie) double LP by Selten Gehörte Musik from 1974.

Also included are the two bonus pieces from the 7" that was included with the first 100 copies of the original edition. Double CD packaged in full colour LP gatefold sleeve reproduction of the original artwork, with printed inner sleeve featuring rare photos and an English text on Selten Gehörte Musik by Gerhard Rühm.
