The Maximalist! ensemble released at least two albums, of which at least one was a CD.
"What The Body Does Not Remember" was composed from january to may 1987 in Italy in close relationship with the work process of Wim Vandekeybus and his actors / dance group.
It's minimalistic stuff. Maybe even a bit too minimalistic for my taste, but it's still good. The pieces are written by Thierry De Mey and Peter Vermeersch.
Peter Vermeersch later started X-Legged Sally and The Flat Earth Society, hence the presence of this album in the United Mutations files.
If you come across this album, you should defenitely give it a listen. It's not like X-Legged Sally, or FES, but it's interesting to hear Peter Vermeersch's earlier work.
