Nicola Ratti 
Born in Milan in 1978. Began his musical career as guitar player. Lately his approach is more focused on beat-analog experimentation and sound installation. He is currently working with: Giuseppe Ielasi with whom he formed the project entitled Bellows, Attila Faravelli as Faravelliratti, the desertic soundtrack-band Ronin and with Fatima Bianchi for audio/video works.  He has performed live in Europe and North America, and his albums had been released by Anticipate, Preservation, Die Schachtel, Entr’acte, Senufo Editions, Megaplomb, Musica Moderna, Boring Machines, Coriolis Sounds, Zymogen.
Which words define their sound best? Music on Experience. "In the world of Brussels
hip hop, L.E.G. are outsiders. Producing rap at once futuristic and Cosmo-driven, they
differentiate themselves from their contemporaries through music influences gleaned from
the world of experimental music, and through their use of distorted lyrics. Sublyme Diagonal
and Roger3000 produce sounds at once ambiguous and profound, perpetually recycling
what they produce independently from one another. Straight out from their cracked Fruity
Loops program, the result is this 'sonic vessel' in which Citizen Ledge glides and finds his
inspiration, recounting his doubts as to the future of the world and his own existential abyss.
Born in 1974, lives near Milan since 1990. Started playing guitar in 1988, and worked for many
years in the area of 'improvised music' (long term collaborations with Renato Rinaldi, Thomas
Ankersmit, Michel Doneda, Ingar Zach, Dean Roberts).
Since 2007, his work has been mainly studio-based, working on compositions for cds and
records, theatre and film. He abandoned the guitar and his solo shows are now based on
multichannel diffusion and recomposition of pre-existing pieces and fragments, to create
complex site-specific audio works.
Between 1997 and 2006 he has performed live with Taku Sugimoto, Jerome Noetinger, Mark Wastell, Martin Siewert, Nmperign,
Brandon Labelle, Nikos Veliotis, Alessandro Bosetti, Gert-Jan Prins, Phill Niblock, Oren Ambarchi, and many others.
He plays in Bellows (with Nicola Ratti), whose “Handcut” was included in the ‘best of 2010’ list
from The Wire magazine , Oreledigneur (with Renato Rinaldi) and Eselsohr (with Jennifer
