UPDATE: The following message has been received from Cypres:
I have the deep pain to announce, on behalf of the label cypres, the death of my assistant Melanie Defize. She is among the victims of the cowardly attacks that have struck the subway Maelbeek in Brussels this Tuesday 22 March….She leaves a void. Her luminous enthusiasm will be with us much longer.
