LAFMS BOX BOX documents every performance from the exhibition Beneath the Valley of the Lowest Form of Music - The Los Angeles Free Music Society 1972-2012 at The Box, Los Angeles in 2012. The Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS) is an experimental music collective founded by artists and musicians in Pasadena, California in the early 1970s. Continuously active for 40+ years, they have released over 25 albums on their LAFMS label and have released or appeared on hundreds of albums on various labels all over the world. In 2012, their work was the subject of a major exhibition at The Box that included photographs, visual art work, home-made instruments, recordings, ephemera, film & video. For the six week duration of the show, the gallery hosted many unforgettable concerts that captured the attitude and range of musical styles embodied by the LAFMS. Art directed and designed by Tom Recchion and featuring photography by Fredrik Nilsen, this 13 LP box set contains every performance that occurred during the exhibition. Each group is represented by an entire LP side. Comes in a full-color box and includes three posters, a 52-page full color book and a download card.
