His main interest shifted towards contemporary improvised and composed music.

The relationship with his instruments is focused in sonic and textural elements.

Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning.

Active in different settings on the Portuguese scene for free improvised music, both as a collaborator and in leading his own groups.

"Radu Malfatti is an Austrian trombone player and composer. He was born in Innsbruck, in the province of Tyrol, on December 16, 1943. He has been described as "among the leaders in redefining the avant-garde as truly on-the-edge art." His work "since the early nineties... has been investigating the edges of ultraminimalism in both his composed and improvised work." He also operates B-Boim, a CD-R only record label focusing on improvised and composed music, much of it his own."

"Ricardo Guerreiro (Lisbon, 1975) is a composer who predominantly develops his activity in the field of computer music creation, mainly departing from his interest in the algorithmic description of sonic phenomenon and musical structuring. Over the last years he has been collaborating with different musicians in the composition of collaborative performance situations in diversified contexts. In the field of musicological research, he is interested in the fundamentally ontological character of Aesthetics, seen as a discipline that implies an evaluation of our approach to technique, i.e., how we relate to the means we have at our disposal, as well as the broad acting context, namely the cultural, social and physical spaces.

He holds a PhD in Music Informatics / Computer Music from the School of Arts of the Catholic University of Porto. Graduated in Composition by the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (2000) and in Electronic Music (2004) by the Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello di Venezia, Italy. In 2007, he obtained his degree in Musicology at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He attended several composition courses and seminars in Lisbon, Porto, Aveiro, Paris (IRCAM - '99), Darmstadt ('98 and 2000) and Venice, with names like Annette Vande Gorne, Chaya Czernowin, Curtis Roads, Emmanuel Nunes, François Bayle, Hans Zender, Helmut Lachenmann, Isabel Mundry, Julio Estrada, Mark André, Morton Subotnick and Salvatore Sciarrino, among others, as well as Giorgio Agamben's Aesthetics (2001) and Iconology (2004) semester seminars held at the Universities of Verona and Venice, respectively.

As a scholarship holder of the Italian Government he developed, between 2001 and 2002, a research project on the computer music in "Prometeo" by Luigi Nono, supervised by Prof. Alvise Vidolin and having as invited institutions the Center for Computational Sonology (CSC) of the University of Padua and the Luigi Nono Archive in Venice. Between 2004 and 2014 he created and directed the Laboratory of Sound and Composition for the course of Cinema / Motion Picture of Ar.Co (Center for Art and Visual Communication). He was professor (2010-2013) in the courses of Interactive Multimedia Production and Sound Design at the IPA (Instituto Politécnico de Estudos Autónomos). Since 2007, he has been collaborating as a trainer in both ETIC (Escola Técnica de Comunicação e Arte) and EPI (Escola Profissional de Imagem). Between January and October 2016 he was music informatics assistant at ADDAC System, a company that produces modular synthesizers."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Late Summer may be the name of the album, but it also works nicely on this calm, quiet winter day. Stillness is required for an appreciation of this music, a soft blending of Ernesto Rodrigues' viola, Radu Malfatti's trombone, and Ricardo Guerreiro's fragile sine waves and computerized hums.

Over the course of two 40-minute tracks, the trio exercises superhuman patience and restraint. There are no loud or sudden movements; everything is quietly calculated and deployed. The faintest whisper of breath through trombone, the slightest touch of bow to string, all riding above Guerreiro's barely-there electronics, pitches that are often at the very cusp of our hearing range, tones so high or low that they hardly seem to originate from somewhere outside of our own heads. Drawn away by the smallest distraction, you can totally miss this music. Headphones are a must.

If Late Summer sounds boring, I say it's all in how you approach it. It is music that demands time and attention-background noise in the wrong environment is enough to completely cancel out much of these delicate improvisations. Not that a state of pure silence is a feasible listening situation, either. In fact, what becomes fascinating about Late Summer is the way it sort of permeates your listening field, how you become unsure of whether certain sounds are the subtlest gestures from one of the musicians, or something seeping in from elsewhere in the house. The second piece even further amplifies this effect: the external sounds of traffic and birds and people in their recording environment are also mixed in, further blurring the lines between musical intention and mere circumstance.

Rodrigues and Malfatti in particular are known for their immense restraint and desire to subtract any perceived superfluities in sound or gesture. The music they make is not for everyone. Some may even question whether such extreme minimalism even constitutes music. But Late Summer serves as an important reminder. In our frenetic modern lives, it can be difficult to slow down to Late Summer's pace. It almost seems paradoxical, perverse even, that the second recording appropriates rushed city sounds, deploying them to its own unhurried, introspective ends. Finding stillness and a few moments of contemplation in our daily lives is often a tall order. Late Summer makes a stand for these fleeting qualities, things we let slip away at our own peril: attention to detail, awareness of space, time to sit, room to breathe deeply and exhale."-Dan Sorrells, Free Jazz
