ECM release 6CD box set Selected Signs III-VIII

Off the back of last year's exhibition in Munich, ECM records is releasing a six CD, seven hour long box set of music included in the show, with work by Steve Reich, Arvo Pärt, Meredith Monk, Christian Wallumrød, Paul Bley, Evan Parker, Barre Phillips, Frode Haltli, Gary Peacock and Wadada Leo Smith, among others. The box set, Selected Signs III-VIII, comprises mostly previously released material from the ECM catalogue, and like the exhibition, aims to show ECM's connection to other areas of the arts.
