"The Lappetites is Eliane Radigue (France), Kaffe Matthews (UK), Antye Greie/AGF (Germany) and Ryoko Kuwajima (Japan). "Before the libretto" is the Lappetites' first release. The Lappetites is a forum, a meeting place, a concept within which to make and exchange new music via digital and sonic linking games in remote and local places within a multispeaker playground. The Lappetites was spawned from an evening Kaffe Matthews curated at Tonic, New York, April 2001 where o-blaat, Ikue Mori, Zeena Parkins, Marina Rosenfeld and herself played a 45 minute set. Matthews: "All electronics players, not only did we have this ridiculously new situation of improvising with a bunch of just girls, but the potential that evening inspired made it obvious that this format could be the start of this live electronics band idea. And so The Lappetites came into being." With other commitments, distance, travel costs and schedules, it was soon realised, that The Lappetites would be a forum within which to explore these ways of playing, and that members would come and go over time."
