Singer-composer and all-round polimath Lorenzo Esposito Fornasari (a.k.a Lef) has been a recurrent fixture of RareNoise’s catalogue, a relationship that has grown and developed constantly from the very early days of the label.

His voice was first heard on SOMMAs 23 Wheels of Dharma.This performance was then followed with his role in Folk / Electronica trio OWLS with Tony Wakeford and Eraldo Bernocchi.

His collaborations with Bernocchi developed further through three releases by abstract metal / doom band Obake.

Meanwhile LEF engagedin a fascinating avant-rock/avant-jazz collaboration with Italian bass-player Lorenzo Feliciati on Berserk!,and eventually with King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto and bass-player Colin Edwin as O.R.k.on the very recently released Soul Of An Octopus.
