Anne La Berge (flute and electronics) and Marko Ciciliani (no-input mixer) like to get the room rumbling and then go from there. Serving up a wall-to-wall mosaic of hum and buzz, patterned noise, warm distortion and dancing feedback, this duo always finds a way extract demonically clever melodies and glistening harmonies out of the fray. La Berge’s virtuosic microtones splice and dice melodic lines until they dissolve back into the fold or mesh into one of Ciciliani’s broad strokes of colored noise. While La Berge is known for her powerfully percussive approach to the flute, Ciciliani has a whole array of cross-techniques to counterattack and complement. Back in Holland, Anne and Marko have worked together to channel Amsterdam’s diverse live electronics scene into one of the most vigorous improv venues in Europe, Kraakgeluiden .
