From Bagatellen:

Lucio Capece, Sergio Merce – Casa
By Paul Baran ? December 5, 2008 ? One comment
Organized Music from Thessaloniki
Argentine by birth, but a resident of Berlin since 2004, sound designer Lucio Capece has carved out a distinctive voice in his collaborations with key players in the international electro-acoustic improv scene.

This second project by his sextet offers another cargo of proof, but perhaps more importantly it points attention to the expansiveness in his compositional acumen. Bynum’s […]

Andrew Liles and Daniel Menche – The Progeny Of Flies
By Massimo Ricci ? December 4, 2008 ? Post a comment
Beta-lactam Ring
When two creative personalities like Andrew Liles and Daniel Menche join forces, fans are entitled to great expectations, no questions asked. This writer, hardly au fait with the activities of the overwhelmingly prolific Englishman but for a handful of releases and, on the whole, suspicious of certain overly enthusiastic reactions in front of anything […]
