L'Obiettivo dell'Arte di Buby Durini is the third individual compact disc by the composer Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta.
Like Digital Music (MODE 21, 1990) and ARES (ASA-CMC101), L'Obiettivo dell'Arte di Buby Durini was totally composed using Virtual Reality technologies.
This compact disc represents the concert Andromeda (1997), which was based on some studies by Sergei Prokovief. L'Obiettivo dell'Arte di Buby Durini was launched in 1997 in the Trienalle di Milano, Italy. The concert uses, among other sources, breath sounds and radio waves emmited from the Indian Ocean.
