Lucio Menegon is a NYC based guitarist, composer, collaborator and sonic artist. His work ranges from avant garde improvisation to melodic song and film soundtrack composition. With general disregard for genre, Lucio creatively combines the interesting and appropriate - freely mingling angular riffs, subtle sounds and sheer noise with Dick Dale meets Marc Ribot in free-fall after jumping out of a balloon capsule at the edge of space guitar work. He has appeared on over 50 releases and performed all around the globe, from the Sundance Film Festival to the first Sound Emissions Experimental Festival in Beijing China.

The Eurostache group is a project centering around electro-acoustic real-time collaborative experiments in sound. The core ensemble is frequently augmented with guests from the San Francisco Bay Area.

We explore sound-space through the lens and energy of child-like wonderment. Listeners often comment on being drawn into a dreamy escape. Our key experimental technique is using novel instruments, found objects,meta-processing and sound recordings in unusual combinations with traditional instruments. Vocalists employ extended techniques to humanize the highly transient and diverse cacophony. Musical constructs such as composition and melody are set aside as we travel toward the fringes of sound.

Performances often incorporate additional layers of audience interaction, such as improvisational comedy, body movement, and live scoring to films.
