sample the album:
"Barcelona is home to a small but vibrant community of musicians whose work is at the cutting edge of contemporary improvisation. Moving fluidly between acoustic and electronic instruments, the Octante quartet have produced two intense extended improvisations on Lunula, the follow-up disc to their powerful debut on l'innomable from 2005. Octante combine seamlessly on 56 minutes of tough, beautiful music."-Another Timbre

• Show Bio for Alfredo Costa Monteiro
"Alfredo Costa Monteiro was born in 1964 in Porto (Portugal)
Lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
He studied sculpture/installation at the fine art school in Paris with Christian Boltanski.In 1992, he moved to Barcelona. Since then, his work stands somewhere between visual arts, visual poetry and sound. His installations and sound pieces, all of a low-fi character, have in common an interest for unstable processes, raw materials and gestures, where the manipulation of objects as instruments or instruments as objects has a strong phenomenological aspect.
From 1998 to 2006, he was member of espai 22a, an independent collective for contemporary art. From 2001 to 2006, he was also member of IBA col.lectiu d'improvisació
In sound poetry, he performs in solo polyglot and noise pieces ( portuguese, french and spanish), where sound establishes a different semantics.
Ongoing sound projects: Cremaster (with Ferran Fages), i treni inerti (with Ruth Barberán), Atolón (with Ferran Fages and Ruth Barberán), Astero (with Juan Matos Capote), 300 basses (with Jonas Kocher and Luca Venitucci) and duos with Pascal Battus, Tim Olive and Michel Doneda.
He has given workshops at Hangar (Barcelona, Spain), ESDI (Barcelona, Spain), Janácek Academy of Music and Performing Arts (Brno, Czech Republic), Arteleku (San Sebastián, Spain), Facultad de Bellas Artes, (Pontevedra, Spain), ESAD (Caldas da Rainha, Portugal), Crossroads during John Cage's Year, (Lublin, Poland) among others.
He has toured in Canada, Japan and Europe."-Alfredo Costa Monteiro Website (http://www.costamonteiro.net/index.php?/bio/)
