Lucio Capece, Katie Porter: Phase to Phase

Read "Phase to Phase" reviewed by John Eyles

It seems highly likely that the Covid lockdown period will be remembered for the many recordings created because of it, made by musicians collaborating from afar, each confined but able to communicate and swap music using the internet. A range of such recordings has already been released, with a steady trickle still emerging. One such is Phase to Phase by the duo of the Argentinian-born, Berlin-based Lucio Capece and the US-born Utah- resident Katie Porter, both of whom play bass ...

Lucio Capece & Werner Dafeldecker: Iteration

Read "Iteration" reviewed by John Eyles

When the Another Timbre label was set up in 2006-7, its releases were intended to be a balance between modern composition and free improv. Over time, that intention shifted gradually so that the majority of the label's more recent releases have been modern composition.

Read "Two Intonema Releases: Lucio Capece and Vile Cretin" reviewed by John Eyles

The Intonema label released its first CDs in 2011 and has maintained a steady stream of noteworthy releases since, the current pair bringing the total to ten. One of the more remarkable features of Intonema is that it is a Russian label, based in St Petersburg--surely a measure of how far the world has evolved since the days when the only improvised music that emerged from the USSR (as it was at the time) had been smuggled out before being ...

Lucio Capece: Zero Plus Zero

Read "Zero Plus Zero" reviewed by John Eyles

His Potlatch debut, Zero Plus Zero is the first solo recording from Berlin- based, Argentinean Lucio Capece. Recorded in Berlin between 2009 and 2011, it chronicles the ongoing evolution of his music, an evolution that has seen him move from focusing solely on soprano saxophone and bass clarinet to increasingly adding preparations to his instruments and employing the drones of the harmonium-like Indian sruti (or shruti) box. While soprano saxophone and bass clarinet are featured here on one track each, ...
