LCC (acronym of Las CasiCasiotone), are Ana Quiroga and Uge Pañeda, a duo from Asturias, northern Spain. They released their first LP ‘d/evolution’ on Editions Mego, selected among the best albums of 2014 by specialized media. ‘d/evolution’ was also remixed as an EP in 2015.
After 2 years working in cinema and other projects, LCC return in 2017 with their second LP, Bastet, also on Editions Mego.
Bastet is a ritual study gliding the path from the rites of the ancient to the realm of the modern. Bastet is the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess closely linked to music and female power who coerced humans to entertain her in order to keep her untamed animalistic side in check. Whilst absorbing this legend the second LCC release presents itself as a vast canvas of ritual, restraint and spacious sonorities. Stark and unnerving Bastet is not reliant on pure electronics as abstract theatre but rather utilises these tools to conjure a world circling the spheres and planes of symbolic human activity.
Recorded throughout 2016 among residencies at the legendary studios EMS of Stockholm, the Inter Arts Center of Malmö and their own studio in Gijón, Bastet is a rich experience: cryptic, visionary and utterly compelling. 8 tracks laying forth a deep listening journey into the netherworlds of human experience, movement, ritual and space.
LCC have designed and produced sound for a/v shows, performances, cinema, spoken word projects and video installations. They have been working and playing in renowned venues and art centers as Sónar, Norberg, L.E.V., Intonal, Art’s Birthday Party, SAT Montreal, Lieu Multiple, CCCB and LABoral, among others.
And they have also designed and produced sound for a/v shows, performances, cinema, spoken word projects and video installations. They have made several soundtracks for cinema, as the award-winning documentary ‘Ciutat Morta‘ (Selected by San Sebastián Film Festival among others), ‘Free, the movie‘, ‘La Llucha’ (tv show based on the honoree documentary Remine), and ‘Tarajal’.
