We are sad to note the passing of Richard Teitelbaum. A pianist and entho-musicologist, Teitelbaum was known for his work with electronic music (he was a pioneer of brain-wave controlled music) and as an educator. His began his professional life in Italy on a Fulbright, co-founding the group Musica Elettronica Viva with Alvin Curran and Frederic Rzewski. Teitelbaum's discography includes work with Anthony Braxton, Joëlle Léandre, and George Lewis, among others. More recently he was part of drummer Andrew Cyrille’s group that recorded 2016's The Declaration of Musical Independence for ECM.”

  2. That means, another legendary unit is history (MEV)
    The long goodbye continues .....
    Fuck (sorry) all those venues who missed to book MEV last year, they played a single
    concert in 2019.
    Luckily i saw them some years ago in Mulhouse, it was great how they dealed with
    sampling adding piano and some archaic instruments to the mix.
