Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Ciao Ciao Cello dance on the fine line between terror and joy with surprising improvisations that seem to emerge from a primal sonic place: music before the rules were written and after they fell apart.

Mixing the voice of Lorena Izquierdo Aparicio, the tuba of Jack Adler-McKean, and the feedbacker electric and acoustic guitars of Beat Keller, they produce unimaginable sounds and forms."-Ciao Ciao Cello
