Lappetites is Eliane Radigue (France), Kaffe Matthews (U.K.), 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 saw such a performance as an opportunity to gather together women from different backgrounds and different generations to check out ways of live sharing and poaching sound and data from each other as a means of composition. With other commitments, distance, travel costs and schedules, it was soon realized, that The Lappetites would be a forum within which to explore these ways of playing, and that different members would come and go in rotation over time.
