School and college in New York (Bard College, New York University). Now lives in Milan, Italy. After studies in New York (Roswell Rudd, Charlie Haden) he began his professional career in the early 1970s playing standup bass in jazz groups. Toward the end of the Seventies he founded, together with John and Evan Lurie, Arto Lindsay and Tony Fier, the group The Lounge Lizards. For five years or so the group performed all over the world, including international festivals and important venues. Their first LP (now CD, Virgin), published in 1981, continues to sell quite a few copies each year. In parallel with his activity as a jazz instrumentalist, Steve worked in the world of pop music, writing songs and lyrics. After having published two LPs under his name (Domestic Exile, Adaptation) in the early eighties (US, France, Italy, still available in Italy from Materiali Sonori) he began working with songwriters and producers on an international level. He began to spend more time in Italy, working with producers like Giancarlo Bigazzi, Caterina Caselli, the La Bionda brothers, Claudio Fabi, Toto Savio. He wrote songs for artists like Raf, I Righiera, Umberto Tozzi, Alberto Fortis and many others. The song “Self Control” written by Bigazzi-Riefoli-Piccolo (1984) with lyrics by Steve sold many millions of copies, reaching number one on charts all over the world. During the second half of the eighties he lived almost exclusively in New York, writing songs and music for theater. His favorite production from the time was “Ambition” by the company “Love Theater” (Peter Halasc, ex Squat Theater, the company with which Steve worked in the early 1980s), seen at the La Mama theater in New York. In the 1990s he moved to Milan and published two CDs with the collaboration of Italian and American musicians: “Hilarity Workshop” (Underground Records, Bologna, 1997) and “Bitter Pill”(Cox 18 Music, Milan, 1999-2000). His songs were included in compilations published by Sony and EMI, and a number of compilations in the United States). Starting in 1995 he returned to frequent live concert activity, playing festivals and theaters in Italy and around Europe with different line-ups, including Italian musicians (jazzmen Giancarlo Locatelli and Filippo Monico), members of new ‘rock’ groups (Massimo Volume, Afterhours, Rosso Maltese) and renowned artists from New York (Elliott Sharp, Zeena Parkins). For the record company Mescal (dist. Polygram) he produced the CD “Da Qui” by the group “Massimo Volume”. Work with the group continued in 2001 with a concert tour in which Steve also performed on voice, bass and rhodes. Since 1999-2000 his research has focused on the major project The Expedition, a narrative-musical work with many different parts, specifically developed for each city or venue in which it is performed, using the sounds of that city. In the early versions there were as many as 12 musicians on stage, theater sets were utilized, but without video images. After the debut at CS Leoncavallo in Milan and the version prepared for the festival Brescia MusicArte (both in 1999), the show was broken down into modules for separate development. Live work continued in duo with Luca Gemma with “The Secret Diaries of Bruce Chatwin”, at the festival Frontiere in Milan in 1999. This show was later seen in festivals in Pisa and Livorno in summer 2000. DJ-composer Gak Sato (from Tokyo) joined the project in 2000, in the show “Songs about Danger”. For the first time video images were introduced in the concerts, by Armin Linke. This piece was presented at the festival Frontiere in Milan in 2000, and developed at CS Cox 18 Milan a few months later. The project then evolved into a new Expedition. The first results were heard in “Getting Ready for the Expedition” in Venice, for the concert series Off Risonanze, and in Catania at Mercati Generali. Two of the pieces developed for this show became part of the CD by Gak Sato, “Tangram”, published in 2001 by Temposphere Records. From 21 March (premiere at Radio Popolare in Milan) to 15 July 2001 the new version “Expedition/Dérive” was performed in museums, cultural centers and festivals (Milan, Sesto San Giovanni, Catania, Mestre, other cities). In summer 2001 the urban sounds archive assembled by Sato and Piccolo began to produce many new compositions. New videos were also added, working in collaboration with the visual artist Luca Pancrazzi. The work was presented in the context of the MilanoFilmFestival at Piccolo Teatro Studio in Milan, 22 Sept 2001, under the title “Effetto cinema: musica alla deriva”. The collaboration with Elliott Sharp has continued for many years now, including a performance at Teatro Fondamenta Nuova in Venice 26 November 2001, in a duo entitled “Songs from the Frozen Zone”. After a positive experience at the Milan Polytechnic in the summer of 2001, in which the students recorded the sounds of the city to construct a performance and an urban sound map, Piccolo-Sato-Gemma with special guest Elliott Sharp did a concert and workshop at the IUAV architecture institute in Venice on 30 November 2001. The concert “Expedition/Dérive” was included in the series “Suoni e Visioni” in Milan, 11 March 2002 at Teatro di Portaromana, in a complete version with set design, special guest Elliott Sharp and new videos by Janene Higgins, Armin Linke-Paola Di Bello and Luca Pancrazzi. Steve performed on guitar, bass and vocals in the tour for the CD Tangram by Gak Sato in 2001-2. Steve Piccolo and Gak Sato also work in the field of “sound art”, creating installations for galleries and museums. They collaborate with visual artists to realize the sound portions of more complex works. In 2002 the song Green City by Steve, arranged by Gak Sato, was published in over 250,000 copies of compilations in the US, England and Italy. Expedition/Dérive was also performed in the Central Station in Milan, 28 May 2002 (see press release in Italian). Steve and Gak prepared a sound installation and concert for the MilanoFilmFestival 2002, recording and processing the sounds of the square in front of the Piccolo Teatro (22 Sept 2002). Steve participated in the project of Auditorium Records and MMT “A Year for Cage”, a one-year series of initiatives on John Cage, with the first concert at Teatro OutOff in Milan 27 Sept 2002, later at Radio Popolare. This project has evolved into the group Full Metal Cage Collective. Steve co-wrote and sang the title track “Spontaneous” for the recent CD by DJ-composer Painé, for Temposphere Records Spring 2003. In May 2003 Spontaneous was in the German Top 30 club charts. Steve collaborates with the radio program Remix on Rai 3, by Istituto Barlumen. With the group DE-ABC (Steve Piccolo, Gak Sato, Luca Pancrazzi), design of an urban installation, seen in the Urban Furnishings Fair of Esterni and the Isola Art Project show, both in Milan (April 2003). Steve and Gak have composed, performed and recorded many soundtracks for films and videos, including recent projects (2003) with Gabriele Di Matteo and a video on the history of the Compasso d’Oro design award for ADI. The latest video sound works have been for Adrian Paci, Ivo Bonacorsi and A Constructed World. Participation in the Isola Art Project, an initiative of a group of artists and critics to save an abandoned factory surrounded by two parks in a cool neighborhood in Milan and make it into a contemporary art center, instead of the shopping center fashion promo speculation planned by the city. Steve and Gak have recorded a one-hour program for WPS1 Art Radio (NY), entitled "Expedition". Steve and Gak are back again on the faculty for 2004-5 (their third year) at Accademia Carrara of Bergamo, teaching a course on "sound design". Steve will also teach the Sound section of the university course on "new techniques of art". GAK SATO was born in Tokyo in 1969. In 1994 he created the band Diet Music in Tokyo. In 1999 he became Artistic Director of TEMPOSPHERE, the contemporary music label of Right Tempo Records in Milan. His debut album POST-ECHO (Temposphere, 1999) immediately led to contacts with other producers such as Amon Tobin, Kid Loco and United Future Organization for artistic collaborations. Gak has participated on various remix projects (Easy Tempo Experience) with the Easy Tempo label (which reissues and remixes Italian soundtracks of the 60s and 70s). Successes include remixes of compositions by some of the greatest Italian masters of film music such as Piero Umiliani, Armando Trovajoli, Piero Piccioni and Lesiman (Motore a Ioni, Mah Nà Mah Nà, Lady Magnolia, all composed by Umiliani, Masquerade by Trovajoli). In these projects he has worked alongside the likes of Rainer Truby, Kid Loco, DJ Vadim, Cinematic Orchestra, Raphael Sebbag (UFO), Beanfield and Galliano (Underhead). In 1999 Gak Sato released a new single featuring Hip Wagging-Foot Shuffling remixed by Amin Tobin (Ninja Tune) along with a version of the great Metti una sera a cena by Ennio Morricone performed together with Alessandro Alessandroni on vocals. In 2001 Gak released his second album TANGRAM (Temposphere). On this record he makes less use of samples, getting some of the best Italian jazz musicians involved in compositions that blend the techniques of contemporary production with the talent of great improvisers. The title track Tangram has been issued in a remix by the producer Yukihiro Fukutomi and features the trumpet artistry of Nargo (from Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra). The track Green City is Gak’s version of a song by Lounge Lizards co-founder Steve Piccolo, with guest vocals by Piccolo himself. This track has been featured on many compilations in the US and Europe. Gak Sato’s live performances include the Tangram Tour with Steve Piccolo and Pepe Ragonese joining him in a live trio with video (2002 in Portugal, London, Monte Carlo, Italy) and evenings together with turntable masters like Gilles Peterson, Rainer Trüby, Pizzicato Five, Kid Loco and many others. He also performs in Steve Piccolo’s Expedition concerts on programming, keyboards, theremin and percussion, and is co-producer of the new Expedition CD. He has worked with Steve Piccolo on sound art installations in collaboration with leading visual artists and photographers. Since 2002 he is professor of Techniques of Sound in Art at the Accademia Carrara fine arts academy of Bergamo. He is participating in the John Cage tribute “A Year from Cage”, a one-year series of events and performances organized by MMT and Auditorium. Recent collaborations include projects in New York and France, gallery performances, radio shows.

TT: 69' 42". Dépaysements è un lavoro di sfioramenti, marginalità e sconfinamenti. La traccia em,ozionale che lo attraversa è una permanente condizione di deriva o naufragio di un paesaggio nelll'altro. Si gioca l'inserimento di suggestioni geografiche in un sistema centrifugo dove, scivolando semanticamente, ognuna di questa si sottrae all atrappola della definizione o non definizione di sé. L'"artificio delle temporalità" tra musica colta occidentale e il dato extraeuropeo, con la sua diversa percezione della storia, ispira l'intero ciclo per un convivere di identità stimolate al movimento non solo dalla trama delle storie del passato ma anche e soprattutto da sempre più compromettenti e politiche ipotesi di futuro. Il CD "Dépaysements" si compone di 10 tracce: 1: Maftir (2003) per viola da gamba sola, 6' 46", viola Hille Perl; 2: Mizmor (1999) per pianoforte solo, 4' 48", pianoforte Cristina Barbuti; 3- 6: Le divan oriental-occidental (2002) Quatre chansons pour voix et piano, soprano Linda Campanella, pianoforte Cristina Barbuti 3: Ad'h'â at--tanâ'i (testo di Ibn Zaydun), 7' 14"; 4: Gestern mittags (testo di R. M. Rilke), 4' 59"; 5: Gingo biloba (testo di J. W. Von Goethe), 6'07"; 6: L'âme que l'amour ne connaît (testo di Rûmi), 4' 49"; 7: Dhil (2004) per contrabasso solo, 7' 59", contrabasso Willy Merz; 8: Pardes (2003) per percussione sola, 13' 34", percussioni Thierry Miroglio; 9 Dung (1998) per faagotto solo, 5' 33", fagotto Diego Chenna; 10: Reng (2003) per viola sola, 7' 48", viola Danilo Rossi.

Copyright: Kaffe Matthews 2000. Mixed and edited by km at Annette Works. [post_title] => The last of the violins (track 14) [post_excerpt] => Kaffe Matthews has been making and performing new electro-acoustic music since 1990. She is acknowledged as a leading figure and pioneer in the field of electronic improvisation and live composition making on average 50 performances a year worldwide. In 1997 she established the label Annette Works, releasing the best of these events on the six cd's, 'cd Ann', 'cd Bea' , 'cd cecile' ,'cd dd', 'cd eb and flo' presenting an annual document of ever developing sound worlds. Matthews makes site-specific sound works live, playing in the dark in the middle of the space, the audience surrounding her, the sounds moving around them. She uses self-designed software based matrices through which she pulls, pushes and reprocesses sounds live. Starting with an empty hard drive, a theremin, carefully located microphones and a four channel sound system, the room/gallery/concert hall/club/church/ship/audience/desert and its acoustic are also her instrument. It’s dangerous, but playing live on that fragile human boundary between success and failure is an essential aspect to her process. She also collaborates and has worked and performed with many artists worldwide including agf, Ryoko Kuwajima, Zeena Parkins, Sachiko M, Brian Duffy, Ikue Mori, Marina Rosenfeld, Pan-Sonic, O’Blaat, Oren Ambarchi, Alan Lamb, Christian Fennesz, and is now working on things Italian with Tarantata, an opera with 'the lappetites' and ongoing democractic stuggles with pan-European electronics orchestra ‘MIMEO’. She has also been making a growing body of composed works through collaborations with a variety of people, things and processes. From working with NASA astronauts researching the sonic experience of human and animal space travel making BAFTA awarded Weightless Animals, kites and the weather on an uninhabited Scottish island, (Weather Made', AWCDr01), taut wires in the Australian outback, mobile phone communication to a gallery in New York, and more recently “Touching Concrete Lightly” for MIMEO at the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2003, London designed by Oscar Niemeyer, now available as triple cd. Future commissions include sonic bed for 'Her Noise' (opening South London Gallery,September 2005), and a site specific work for the Mexican Sound Oasis Exhibition, Mexico City, February 2005 at Paseo de la Reforma. Background. Playing classical violin from the age of 7, singing badly in one band but getting further with bass and drums in another which recorded and toured for 4 years, in 1985 she discovered electricity and sound and with that, her current trajectory. Since then, acid house engineering, electrically reconstructing the violin, Distinction for a Masters in Music Technology, introducing and running a Performance Technology course at one of the leading Live Arts Colleges in the UK, and establishing the label Annette Works. She also set up a shop and did a Zoology degree along the way.

Arch. 73.a, 190.2 [post_title] => Intervento inabituale [post_excerpt] => Steve Piccolo -Born 1954 New Hampshire USA. School and college in New York (Bard College, New York University). Now lives in Milan, Italy. After studies in New York (Roswell Rudd, Charlie Haden) he began his professional career in the early 1970s playing standup bass in jazz groups. Toward the end of the Seventies he founded, together with John and Evan Lurie, Arto Lindsay and Tony Fier, the group The Lounge Lizards. For five years or so the group performed all over the world, including international festivals and important venues. Their first LP (now CD, Virgin), published in 1981, continues to sell quite a few copies each year. In parallel with his activity as a jazz instrumentalist, Steve worked in the world of pop music, writing songs and lyrics. After having published two LPs under his name (Domestic Exile, Adaptation) in the early eighties (US, France, Italy, still available in Italy from Materiali Sonori) he began working with songwriters and producers on an international level. He began to spend more time in Italy, working with producers like Giancarlo Bigazzi, Caterina Caselli, the La Bionda brothers, Claudio Fabi, Toto Savio. He wrote songs for artists like Raf, I Righiera, Umberto Tozzi, Alberto Fortis and many others. The song “Self Control” written by Bigazzi-Riefoli-Piccolo (1984) with lyrics by Steve sold many millions of copies, reaching number one on charts all over the world. During the second half of the eighties he lived almost exclusively in New York, writing songs and music for theater. His favorite production from the time was “Ambition” by the company “Love Theater” (Peter Halasc, ex Squat Theater, the company with which Steve worked in the early 1980s), seen at the La Mama theater in New York. In the 1990s he moved to Milan and published two CDs with the collaboration of Italian and American musicians: “Hilarity Workshop” (Underground Records, Bologna, 1997) and “Bitter Pill”(Cox 18 Music, Milan, 1999-2000). His songs were included in compilations published by Sony and EMI, and a number of compilations in the United States). Starting in 1995 he returned to frequent live concert activity, playing festivals and theaters in Italy and around Europe with different line-ups, including Italian musicians (jazzmen Giancarlo Locatelli and Filippo Monico), members of new ‘rock’ groups (Massimo Volume, Afterhours, Rosso Maltese) and renowned artists from New York (Elliott Sharp, Zeena Parkins). For the record company Mescal (dist. Polygram) he produced the CD “Da Qui” by the group “Massimo Volume”. Work with the group continued in 2001 with a concert tour in which Steve also performed on voice, bass and rhodes. Since 1999-2000 his research has focused on the major project The Expedition, a narrative-musical work with many different parts, specifically developed for each city or venue in which it is performed, using the sounds of that city. In the early versions there were as many as 12 musicians on stage, theater sets were utilized, but without video images. After the debut at CS Leoncavallo in Milan and the version prepared for the festival Brescia MusicArte (both in 1999), the show was broken down into modules for separate development. Live work continued in duo with Luca Gemma with “The Secret Diaries of Bruce Chatwin”, at the festival Frontiere in Milan in 1999. This show was later seen in festivals in Pisa and Livorno in summer 2000. DJ-composer Gak Sato (from Tokyo) joined the project in 2000, in the show “Songs about Danger”. For the first time video images were introduced in the concerts, by Armin Linke. This piece was presented at the festival Frontiere in Milan in 2000, and developed at CS Cox 18 Milan a few months later. The project then evolved into a new Expedition. The first results were heard in “Getting Ready for the Expedition” in Venice, for the concert series Off Risonanze, and in Catania at Mercati Generali. Two of the pieces developed for this show became part of the CD by Gak Sato, “Tangram”, published in 2001 by Temposphere Records. From 21 March (premiere at Radio Popolare in Milan) to 15 July 2001 the new version “Expedition/Dérive” was performed in museums, cultural centers and festivals (Milan, Sesto San Giovanni, Catania, Mestre, other cities). In summer 2001 the urban sounds archive assembled by Sato and Piccolo began to produce many new compositions. New videos were also added, working in collaboration with the visual artist Luca Pancrazzi. The work was presented in the context of the MilanoFilmFestival at Piccolo Teatro Studio in Milan, 22 Sept 2001, under the title “Effetto cinema: musica alla deriva”. The collaboration with Elliott Sharp has continued for many years now, including a performance at Teatro Fondamenta Nuova in Venice 26 November 2001, in a duo entitled “Songs from the Frozen Zone”. After a positive experience at the Milan Polytechnic in the summer of 2001, in which the students recorded the sounds of the city to construct a performance and an urban sound map, Piccolo-Sato-Gemma with special guest Elliott Sharp did a concert and workshop at the IUAV architecture institute in Venice on 30 November 2001. The concert “Expedition/Dérive” was included in the series “Suoni e Visioni” in Milan, 11 March 2002 at Teatro di Portaromana, in a complete version with set design, special guest Elliott Sharp and new videos by Janene Higgins, Armin Linke-Paola Di Bello and Luca Pancrazzi. Steve performed on guitar, bass and vocals in the tour for the CD Tangram by Gak Sato in 2001-2. Steve Piccolo and Gak Sato also work in the field of “sound art”, creating installations for galleries and museums. They collaborate with visual artists to realize the sound portions of more complex works. In 2002 the song Green City by Steve, arranged by Gak Sato, was published in over 250,000 copies of compilations in the US, England and Italy. Expedition/Dérive was also performed in the Central Station in Milan, 28 May 2002 (see press release in Italian). Steve and Gak prepared a sound installation and concert for the MilanoFilmFestival 2002, recording and processing the sounds of the square in front of the Piccolo Teatro (22 Sept 2002). Steve participated in the project of Auditorium Records and MMT “A Year for Cage”, a one-year series of initiatives on John Cage, with the first concert at Teatro OutOff in Milan 27 Sept 2002, later at Radio Popolare. This project has evolved into the group Full Metal Cage Collective. Steve co-wrote and sang the title track “Spontaneous” for the recent CD by DJ-composer Painé, for Temposphere Records Spring 2003. In May 2003 Spontaneous was in the German Top 30 club charts. Steve collaborates with the radio program Remix on Rai 3, by Istituto Barlumen. With the group DE-ABC (Steve Piccolo, Gak Sato, Luca Pancrazzi), design of an urban installation, seen in the Urban Furnishings Fair of Esterni and the Isola Art Project show, both in Milan (April 2003). Steve and Gak have composed, performed and recorded many soundtracks for films and videos, including recent projects (2003) with Gabriele Di Matteo and a video on the history of the Compasso d’Oro design award for ADI. The latest video sound works have been for Adrian Paci, Ivo Bonacorsi and A Constructed World. Participation in the Isola Art Project, an initiative of a group of artists and critics to save an abandoned factory surrounded by two parks in a cool neighborhood in Milan and make it into a contemporary art center, instead of the shopping center fashion promo speculation planned by the city. Steve and Gak have recorded a one-hour program for WPS1 Art Radio (NY), entitled "Expedition". Steve and Gak are back again on the faculty for 2004-5 (their third year) at Accademia Carrara of Bergamo, teaching a course on "sound design". Steve will also teach the Sound section of the university course on "new techniques of art".
