"Lacerba is the first vinyl album ever released by Clean Feed. After 10 years of digital editions, this is a debut for the Portuguese label, and certainly the first of many. After all, the music contained inside was recorded during a festival in Lisbon organized to celebrate that decade of life which changed the jazz scene in Portugal and in the world. It was there that Ken Vandermark presented the new and very special project Made to Break, shared with Christoff Kurzmann, Dave Hoff and Tim Daisy. The three days of concerts resulted in this LP and also the CD "Provoke", both with different pieces. Different, but created with the same compositional modules, because the principle followed is the one Vandermark calls "modular organization".

Several existing sub-structures are differently combined in order to continuously renew each mixing in every performance. There's three main approaches associated: one groovy oriented, coming from Vandermark's appreciation of post-punk, funk and reggae, another abstract and aligned with the European free improvisation procedures, and a third one with an ambient, electronic and minimalist quality. The purpose is to find alternatives to the typical jazz writing for improvisers: "I'm trying to move further outside of "jazz resources and aesthetics" and to utilize different sources of rhythmic/melodic ideas, in order to find new ways to organize compositional material", says the Chicagoan saxophonist and clarinetist.

The implications are wide: Made to Break is developing a new set of languages for improvisation, either more restricted or more open, and certainly more confrontational, more deconstructed and more antagonistic. Let's hear what happens..."-Clean Feed

"Devin Hoff is a double-bassist, bass guitarist, guitarist and songwriter. He began playing music seriously at age 15, and has continued to do so ever since, foregoing college as he was already working at his chosen profession. Torn between the visceral energies of punk and metal and the spiritual freedom of free jazz in his youth, he has spent the last 20-plus years exploring the resonance and dissonance of these musical tendencies. Devin has played and recorded with many musicians and bands over the years, including Carla Bozulich, Nels Cline, Vijay Iyer, Carla Kihlstedt, Joshua Redman, Kira Roessler, Mike Watt, and Xiu Xiu. His main creative vehicles of the past decade or so are the "crust jazz" bass/drums duo Good For Cows (with drummer Ches Smith) and his ongoing solo bass project, The Devin Hoff Platform. He also plays under a pseudonym in various crust punk and metal projects."

"Born in Warwick, Rhode Island on September 22nd, 1964, Ken Vandermark began studying the tenor saxophone at the age of 16. Since graduating with a degree in Film and Communications from McGill University during the spring of 1986, his primary creative emphasis has been the exploration of contemporary music that deals directly with advanced methods of improvisation. In 1989, he moved to Chicago from Boston, and has worked continuously from the early 1990's onward, both as a performer and organizer in North America and Europe, recording in a large array of contexts, with many internationally renowned musicians (such as Fred Anderson, Ab Baars, Peter Brötzmann, Tim Daisy, Hamid Drake, Terrie Ex, Mats Gustafsson, Devin Hoff, Christof Kurzmann, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Joe McPhee, Paal Nilssen-Love, Paul Lytton, Andy Moor, Joe Morris, and Nate Wooley). His current activity includes work with Made To Break, The Resonance Ensemble, Side A, Lean Left, Fire Room, the DKV Trio, and duos with Paal Nilssen-Love and Tim Daisy; in addition, he is the music director of the experimental Pop band, The Margots. More than half of each year is spent touring in Europe, North America, and Japan, and his concerts and numerous recordings have been critically acclaimed both at home and abroad. In addition to the tenor sax, he also plays the bass and Bb clarinet, and baritone saxophone. In 1999 he was awarded the MacArthur prize for music."
