Cd release:
Non Troppo Lontano (2010, Eh? 47)

Bob and Massimo began their collaborations at a very long physical distance but in a close spiritual relationship in an anarchistic corner of myspace towards the end of 2007. Bob was sending out eight minutes of sonic material – voice, electronics, field recordings – to composer/musicians in North America and Europe asking them to add, subtract, multiply and/or divide the sounds to create new pieces. At the end there were twelve responses and they put out a cd, Eight, on the Italian label, Setola di Maiale.

Massimo and Bob expresses a mutual desire to play together live and Massimo said that he hoped that it would be in "un giorno non troppo lontano". Bob then decided to meet with Massimo in Milano in October of 2008 and create a small cd release tour that would also involve two other Eight participants, Renato Ciunfrini and Graziano Lella from Roma.
While in Milano they recorded this duo in (home) Studio Mumacs. Finally, doppo de multi giorni lontani, it was released on the EH? label.

They have continued their long distance collaborations with Nine, a series of graphic compositions sent out as before, , and now in the Massimo's new work Variazioni Mumacs, a composition of electroacoustic and improvised music, a sequence of 32 tracks built on the structure of Bach's Goldberg Variations.
Massimo and Bob met in Paris in May of 2010 for a series of concerts (listen) and recently decided to call themselves Falamar.
See here the video of Mr Mercury (= Bob) with Massimo in concert @ R de Choc in Paris, May 21st.
