ChipShop music with Erik Carlsson (percussion), Martin Kuchen (sax & radio), David Lacey (percussion & electronics) and Paul Vogel (computer & clarinet) meet Atolon (Ruth Barberan, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, and Ferran Fages.
ChipShop has been working together since 2007, combining Irish and Swedish players amongst the best and most prolific in modern electroacoustic improvisation. Atolón is 3/4ths of Octante, who released lunula on Another Timbre in 2009. Fages and Monteiro have worked together for more than a decade as Cremaster, with releases on Monotype. The merging of these two groups brings six keenly listening improvisers together for a unique and spacious music, a fascinating album of restrained soundwork that belies the size of the group, while fascinating the listener in subtle details.

• 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/)
