The third album from Inventionis Mater includes new Zappa transcriptions, original compositions and improvisations. Plus there's a guest percussionist as well.

The concept of Zapping comes from TV channel-hopping. In the same way this CD juxtaposes very different pieces that are all connected.

The excellent cover art is once again by Antero Valério.

After the first album "Does Humor Belong In Classical Music?" the Inventionis Maters return with more Frank Zappa Music on an album conceived around the character of King Kong:

"The name of this song is King Kong. It’s the story of a very large gorilla who lived in the jungle, and he was doing ok until some Americans came by and thought that they would take him home with them. They took him to the US and they made some money by using the gorilla. Then they killed him." - Frank Zappa, Live Intro Plus King Kong From Lumpy-Money Sessions (section 8, take 22).

This album contains both Frank Zappa's songs and compositions by the Inventionis Mater Duo.
The excellent cover art is by Antero Valério.

Zappa tunes transcribed and played by a pair of young Italian classical musicians. Their aim is to "take the bizarre and eccentric rock of Zappa and return it to the audience in a duo transcription reduced to the essentials. A trip from rhythm 'n blues to dodecaphonic atmostpheres. The Inventionis Mater tells you about Zappa; an acrobat on the thin line between Art music and Pop music".
And rather well they do it too!
