CAFé ACOUSMATIC (PRX radio): Music fror Viola and Electronics II

Michel Banabila’s and Oene van Geel's Music for viola and electronics I & II is wonderfully immersive, expansive, and intimate. If there’s one word that comes to mind, over and over it’s cinematic. The listener is swept up in a storyline that’s played out by two superb actors, in this instance, Oene von Geel’s viola and Banabila’s electronic counterpoint of mood and temperament. The overall result is a sonic dance that fills the space and the heart. Let’s encourage these two superb musicians keep collaborating. Highly recommended for headphones. Five stars.  (Don Hill)
