Label: Luce Sia
1984年に活動を開始、自主制作をはじめ、Misty Circles、Broken Flag、OBUH Records、Slaughter Productionsなどにカセット作品を残したMaurizio PustianazのソロGerstein。新旧含め氏の作品を幾つか手掛けてきたLuce Siaが初のアーカイブ的音源を制作。タイトルの通り1985〜2016年という氏の32年間を時系列で追っていく内容となっており、初期のロウ&ストレンジなピアノが徐々に拡張され様々に変容していきます。A4のシートを折りたたんだ特殊紙スリーヴ。大推薦。
Compiles one track from each release up to 2015 plus 3 unreleased ones (18 to 20).
Mastered at the East Side Studios, New York, December 2016.

This is the first Gerstein compilation that includes tracks i selected from every official release. Tracks from the split with Artico Cvlto and "1999 Live At Radio Blackout" tapes, released by Luce Sia, are not included because they are still available to purchase and also because I wanted to include three unreleased tracks.
After 32 years I thought it would have been nice to check how my music evolved during the years. Maybe it could sound like a mishmash of styles, but I think that every track has my personal imprint and that’s enough for me, because every person is multifaceted and my music has always been something that represented my inner self.
