UTILITY FOG - FBI RADIO: Music for Viola and Electronics

Wonderful viola & electronics from the Netherlands courtesy of Michel Banabila & Oene van Geel.

A different take on strings and electronics comes from frequently-featured Dutch artist Michel Banabila's new album with his countryman Oene van Geel on viola. Some rhythmic bass throbbing is the closest we get to a beat, but mostly it's ambient glitchscapes with occasional explosions, and at points surprisingly folky multi-tracked viola. Well worth lending your ear. (Peter Hollo - Utility Fog)
