Andres Bucci and Kate Simko come together from very distinct pasts to find a common ground in the music they create. Andres is a well-respected Chilean producer hailing from the electronic music hotbed of Santiago, Chile, home to the likes of Miss Dinky, Atom Heart/Senor Coconut, Luciano, Pier Bucci and Ricardo Villalobos. Having also spent six years living in Berlin, Andres has a unique sound, captured in many projects: Plan V - alongside Argentinean superstar Gustavo Cerati and Black Dog (while introducing electro to Chile and Argentina); recent project Bucci with brother Pier; solo work as "Chord," and of course, Detalles. Kate Simko is a classically trained pianist, composer and producer from Chicago whose career includes working with Phillip Glass and Thomas Brinkmann.
The duo met in the fall of 2001 while Kate was studying music composition in Santiago. Their first release, Shapes of Summer, was released by influential German label Traum Schallplatten in 2003. The duo then parted ways as Kate moved back to Chicago, and reunited in 2004 for MUTEK.CL. This led to recording their follow-up album, titled "Micros Morning," which will be released by Kupei Musika in January 2007.
