descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Taxonomy (Martusciello, Lella, Fega) plays compositions and improvises, exploring the syncretism between different musical codes. Taxonomy always allows the whole to be divided up into its constituent parts. A line of shadow between osmosis and isomorphism. Martusciello is a member of the improvisation group Ossatura [and also recently released a solo CD on Recommended Records, also available at Squidco].
Very active in a number of groups and ensembles, and extremely versatile, the members of this trio live for improvised and experimental music. Elio Martusciello is a renowned electroacoustician, with several international awards under his belt. Besides electronics, Roberto Fega also plays tenor and soprano sax. He is a member of the political fanfare Titubanda and the multimedia collective Arturo, and also composes music for dance. Graziano Lella is best known as a bassist and a sax player. He has previously played in a punk band before joining the avant-rock group Dura Figura in 1997."-Ambiances Magnetiques
