ap'strophe began working together in 2006 in search of a common sonoric space, which they found in the investigation of distinctive timbres between acoustic guitar and zither.

Ap'strophe (Fages, Ferran & Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga): Corgroc (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"ap'strophe is the duo of Ferran Fages and Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga. They began working together in 2006, when Ferran Fages recorded "Cançons per a un lent retard". At that time he collaborated with Dimitra Lazaridou Chatzigoga in the track Paraula clau, which they composed and interpreted together. After recording the album they realized the impossibility of re-interpreting this piece, which is based on the detuning(s) of the guitar, but decided to continue working together and started to search for a common sonoric space. The result of this survey gave shape to their present collaboration, which consists of a duo of acoustic guitar and zither. With their music they investigate the perception of the distinctive timbre of the guitar and the zither alongside the differences and similarities of their string instruments. Their approximation combines the acoustic with the electronic in the sense that they employ frequencies produced by their acoustic notes together with sounds produced by electronic means. Their first album 'objects sense objectes' has been released in Etude Records in May 2009, while their second album 'corgroc' is out now in another timbre."-Ap'strophe web site
