Metaxu was founded by Maurizio Martusciello and Filippo Paolini in Rome (1997). Their common ground is the work into the electroacoustic experimentation as composers and improvisors. Their use of tapes, samples, scatching techniques and lo-fi means allows a sort of “acoustic microscopia,” rich in rubble, casts and lost memories.

The plagiarist and collage effort of Paolini and Martusciello, ideas of “reduced listening,” typical of the acousmatic experience, create an acoustic isomorphism where the meeting point is not an organization principle, but a means of transport: “No form develops, but some effects move, some becomings catapult themselves” (Gilles Deleuze).
