This is a special trio of Margarida Garcia (double bass) + Barry Weisblat (homemade electronics) + Diogo Valério (laptop)!

Margarida Garcia / Barry Weisblat In the short time these two have publicly displayed their musical aesthetics, both Barry (homemade electronics) and Margarida (double bass) have each collaborated with an impressive collection of experimental artists, such as Tower Recordings, Eddie Prevost, Tetuzi Akiyama, Rhodri Davies, Toshio Kajiwara, and Phill Niblock. In fact it is was Niblock who brought Margarida to New York from her home in Lisbon, Portugal this past Spring. Her first performances at the Phonomena Sound Events, and the debut of her duo with (Brooklyn native) Weisblat at Experimental Intermedia, instantly captured the attention of New York's dowtown music community. However, it is not just music that these two deal with. Weisblat's machine and circuit manipulations also reach into the area of photography and sound engineering, where he has aided the likes of the late Peter Kowald, Erstwhile Records, and sound artist Dean Roberts. While Garcia's graphic design work has been displayed as video art, installations, and poster art. As a duo, Margarida and Barry have developed a spontaneous language and a dynamic range that is all their own. She journies through the landscape of the bass and electronic pick-up with her fingers, bow, sticks and stones, and anything else she finds fit, while he experiments with electro-magnetic devices, homemade circuits, and solar cell technology. The textures that emerge from their performance peel back the layers of air, knots it together, and then let's it simply hang.

Diogo Valério is a portuguese graphic designer and musician working on creating music where experimentation and improvisation are the most important issues. He has been developing projects, over the last few years, in different media such as print, video and sound. Since the beginning of 2002 he started a new experimental sound project - allto - exploring through the idea of space, socially, physically transposing them into a set of performances.
