After 10 years as a duo, flute/electronic artist Anne Le Berge (Lucas Niggli, Cor Fuhler, &c) and Lukas Simonis (Vril, AA Kismet, &c) have released an album of electro-acoust improv, graphic scores and other intriguing approaches.

La Berge, Anne & Lukas Simonis
Rust Fungus

La Berge, Anne & Lukas Simonis: Rust Fungus (Z6 Records)
Label: Z6 Records    
Released in: Netherlands    

"The La Berge & Simonis duo have finally released their first CD after performing together for over ten years. This is not a "let's get together and see what happens" kind of thing. They have compiled an impressive backlog of recordings and they have even had some occasional performances, mostly with others involved. Their guest list includes: Richard Barrett, Erhard Hirt, Eddie Prevost and the band Apricot My Lady with the Bohman Brothers. This last project resulted in a CD release in 2009 on Esc Rec: Newly Refurbished and Tussock Moth.

Rust Fungus was recorded between 2007 and 2009. Most of it was done in a session in the WORM venue in Rotterdam, recorded by James Rubery.

What should we say about the music that is not there to be heard? It is improv with added flavors that act as subtle guiding forces. Some are graphic scores, others decisions like "this one shouldn't be too long", while others are simply inspired by their titles. (Titles are structures too.)

Lukas Simonis has been playing his version of rock & noise & improvised music for some time now. He cooperated ao. With Pierre Bastien, Goh Lee Kwang, Ivan Palacky, Dave Brown, Eugene Chadbourne and Peter Stampfel. Some of his bands; Coolhaven, Dull Schicksal, Liana Flu Winks, Vril, Faces. He makes sound & music for films, makes (& curates) radioplays and composes for various groups. He also works for WORM, a centre for experimental arts in Rotterdam.

Anne La Berge is a pioneer flutist/composer, working with interactive computer systems, improvisation and as a leading interpreter of contemporary chamber music. She also writes texts and poems that slide in and out of her compositions and improvisations. She makes music for theater, film, radioplays and concert performances. She is determined to intimately integrate acoustic instrumental improvisation with live electronics and/or the computer as a musical partner."-Z6 Records
