There is more than one artist with the name Prima Materia (First Matter): 1) Prima Materia was an Italian overtone singing quartet founded by Roberto Laneri in San Diego, United States in 1973, and based in Rome after their return to Italy. The musicians of Prima Materia individually researched and developed unusual vocal techniques (originally used in Tantric rituals in North India, Mongolia and Tibet), based upon the use of overtones coupled with a special state of inner concentration, which was the essential condition for both the emission and control of long-sustained and complex vocal sounds. Their capacity to sustain a note for what seems an eternity, and then continue to provide endless variations generates a continuous and sustained drone of sound, in which the overtones are clearly perceived. Their only album "Tail of the Tiger" was released by Ananda, an obscure label owned by Roberto Laneri, Alvin Curran and Giacinto Scelsi. The record soon disappeared and over the became almost a legend among collectors and experimental music lovers.

In 2005 Die Schachtel released "The Tail of the Tiger" in a deluxe digipak CD edition containing the original LP version and two live recordings. Members Roberto Laneri - vocals Susan Hendricks - vocals Claudio Ricciardi - vocals Gianni Nebbiosi - vocals 2) Prima Materia (aka Prima Materia with Rashied Ali) is a jazz group from New York, United States formed in 1994.
