Read "Two contrasting releases from Charlotte Hug on the Fundacja Słuchaj! label" reviewed by John Eyles

For many followers of improvised music, their first experience of Switzerland's Charlotte Hug was around the turn of the millennium, as a viola player, an instrument on which she was classically trained.

Stefano Pastor & Charlotte Hug: Paragon D'archi

Read "Paragon D'archi" reviewed by Eyal Hareuveni

Performing as a duo since 2005, Hug and Blondy continue to do so. The album sleeve bears a phrase that is increasingly seen in recent years: “No overdubbing or electronic modification was used." In ...
