The hybrid multimedia magazine CRU was created by French composer Frédéric Acquaviva and British opera singer Loré Lixenberg in Berlin Neukölln. CRU documents what’s happening or what could have happened at the non-commercial artist space La Plaque Tournante. (Read Iklectik’s exclusive 2017 interview with Loré Lixenberg)

Loré Lixenberg (UK)
Lives, works and sleeps in London. He has composed since 1990 around 100 music, published 100 records or multiples exhibited in galleries and held in the collections of Centre Pompidou. He has worked with Isidore Isou, Bernard Heidsieck, Maurice Lemaître or Henri Chopin and has given over 100 concerts in USA, China, Russia, Germany, Kenya, Italy, Canada, Sweden…. on the invitation of composers such as Denis Dufour, Phill Niblock or Pauline Oliveros.
Jean-Baptiste Favory is composer and sound artist. He first came to experimental thought rock music. He has studied composition with Jean-Claude Risset and Julio Estrada, and has been Luc Ferrari and Gavin Bryars’s assistant. He’s the French part of the Mexican free-rock group Los Lichis, and also plays synths in the avant group Ensemble C.L.S.I. He has composed several pieces of musique concrète, mostly released on CDs and Vinyles, in Europe and United states.
Andy Ingamells is an experimental musician who develops unorthodox methods of composition that blur the line between composer and performer. He has dispersed brief instructions via the internet to be interpreted and performed in over 30 different countries during a single day, filled taxis with recorder players reading traffic lights as musical notation, been tickled by improvisors playing his ticklish body as an instrument, and completed a marathon five-day performance-journey across Europe inspired by organ music.
Loré Lixenberg is the one and only mezzo-soprano to have sung with Pierre Boulez as well as Bronski Beat (and Georges Aperghis, Earle Brown, Karlheinz Stockhausen, György Ligeti or Trevor Wishart)… Beyond « extended vocals » technics, Lixenberg develops since the XXIst century « real time operas » and other computer voice meeting apps. She is the leader of the « Voice Party ».
