The album, featuring Milan Knízák, Petr Ferenc and Opening Performance Orchestra, includes Knízák’s 1973 private recording BROKEN MUSIC, released as a multiple of forty copies by Armin Hundertmark in 1983 on Edition Hundertmark, and a live version of BROKEN REBROKEN, performed in January 2020 at the Museum of Czech Music in Prague by Milan Knízák, Petr Ferenc (aka Phaerentz) and Opening Performance Orchestra.
The album comes with a comprehensive booklet that includes an interview with Milan Knízák on the topic of Broken Music, an extended essay by Petr Ferenc that originally appeared in Czech Music Quarterly, visual documentation from the archives of Maria Knízáková and Opening Performance Orchestra, as well as Anna Basty’rová’s photographic documentation from the 2020 performance of BROKEN REBROKEN.
The cover of the album consists of photographs of Milan Knízák’s now-defunct 1963 assemblage. Jaroslav Buzek created the digital variation of the assemblage and the graphic design.
Mastering was done by Stephan Mathieu and Gabriel Séverin, who also made the audio restoration of the archival recording BROKEN MUSIC.
