Paul Beauchamp :

began his musical career at the base of the Appalachian Mountains in the early 90s experimenting with tape loops, field recordings, found objects and improvised instruments performing in the art group Diviner.  After several years of activity in the home taper scene he co-founded the international artist/musician collective Radon which went on to record and publish such diverse acts as Smegma and Steve Mackay as well as his own Radon resident tribal/industrial/noise group Sikhara with whom he traveled extensively touring America, Europe and Asia non-stop for several years.  His interest in sonic manipulation and experimentation has taken Paul from the aforementioned tape loops and field recordings into the world of synthesis and computer generated music as well as further research into acoustic sources such as harmonica, musical saw and Appalachian Dulcimer, instruments he now uses in his performances as a solo artist in addition to several international theatrical and musical projects as well as playing with the groups Almagest! and Blind Cave Salamander, groups that have formed as a consequence of his relocation to Turin, Italy.  During the course of these events Paul has had the opportunity to collaborate with a myriad of influential musicians in the studio, live and improvised composition including Johann Johannsson, Colin Potter, Steve Stapleton, Jochen Arbiet, Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo and Julia Kent.

Lo Dev Alm :
 
is the name of the electronic solo project of Daniele Pagliero since 1998.
Lo Dev Alm's peculiarity is to create some music contaminated by everything around us,
music as an expression of our time: tangible, rhytmical, actual, purposedly repetitive.

Biography
Daniele Pagliero, born in Turin in 1975, started as an independent musician in his town in 1993. His first
music projects were focused on situationist noise improvisation with bands such as Down (voice and effects)
and  Switch Off (percussions), on industrial electronic experimentations with  Whip (electric  guitar and
programming) and on noise-rock with Amoniaka, a band in which he played the electric bass guitar.
Afterwards he studied jazz piano and worked as sound engineer for Larsen and Daniele Brusaschetto with
whom he co-operated and realized music projects and various productions.
Between 1995 and 1998 he played electric bass guitar in his band, Scumcide, following the trend of extreme
music (hardcore, grindcore and crust) very popular in the squatter communities of Turin at that time.
During this period he recorded some home-made demotapes of industrial electronic music that came out in
2006 produced by Setoladimaiale Label, with the title of "Tapes to Cd".
In 1998 he started a solo career as  Lo Dev Alm playing electronic music and in 2000 he released the
"Eye/mouth ep" which contains a collection of his first works recorded during those two years.
Besides this solo activity he co-operated with bands playing non-conventional and improvised music and in
1999 took part in the Biennal Festival of Venice with the Setola di Maiale Unit and started the new Gbur
project. These are the first works in which he started to use electronics as improvised music.
Always playing improvised electronic music, in 2001 he set up the duet Ipersensity with Stefano Giust and
they took part togheter in the Biennal of Young Artists in Pordenone and Turin.
In the same year he started to co-operate with Frammenti, a well-known hardcore 90's band from Turin,
going through a sound evolution between post-rock and electronic lo-fi.
In 2004 he supported Larsen in the "Cartonianimalettimatti" project playing again the electric bass guitar and
recording the  soundtrack  of  Windsor McCay's  Cartoon  that  has  been performed in  many art  and film
festivals.
In November 2006 he created the netlabel Chew-Z with Fabio Battistetti with the aim of giving more attention
to non conventional artists, who are focused on sound research and experimentation.
In 2007 he released his second official work as  Lo Dev Alm, "It is later than you think" and performed
several live shows.
In 2010 he started following Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo for his solo project (r), working both in studio and
live.
In 2011 he joined the Space Aliens From Outer Space project with Paul Beauchamp and Marco Milanesio.
Daniele Pagliero lives in Turin where since 2001 he has been working as a software designer and multimedia application developper
