Daniel Carter: I was just crying the blues to somebody last night that I wish, I hope, you know, before I have to, like, go out the exit door, you know, that I would be able to be in a group that had strong influences of Schoenberg, Anton Webern, Bach, Indian music, African, rock, hardcore punk, jazz, Noise – but in a synthesis.

Federico Ughi is characteristically splendid, his drums serving as much more than a rhythmic undercurrent…” Steven Loewy, Cadence Magazine

Federico Ughi’s music infuses the New York avant garde sound with a sense of melody inspired by the Italian classical and folk traditions of his childhood in Rome. Ornette Coleman has been a major influence for Federico as well as a mentor.
