Michel Banabila & Willem Cramer first worked together in Chi (1984-1986), (banabila.blogspot.com/2016/08/chi-original-recordings_6.html) and later in East Meets West (1990-1991), (banabila.blogspot.com/2016/08/east-meets-west-hoy-babo-hoy.html). In 1996 they collaborated with Chris Grem making a score and performing live in a dance production by Lieber Gorilla. (banabila.blogspot.com/2016/08/lieber-gorilla-visioenen.html)
This 2018 EP is their first new collaboration in 22 years.
Viola sounds were contributed by Oene van Geel and violin sounds were contributed by Salar Asid. Willem Cramer is a composer & multi instrumentalist, living and working (like Banabila) in Rotterdam. www.willemcramer.com/audio

Reviews / quotes:

Segnaliamo inoltre anche l’uscita quasi contemporanea di “Texture Syndicate” un altro progetto disponibile in digitale (sempre sulla pagina Bandcamp dell’artista) che include il remix di un brano firmato da Michel e dal chitarrista Willem Cramer e alcune nuove tracce realizzate con la collaborazione di Oene Van Geel alla viola e Salar Asid al violino che mescolano efficacemente le sonorità acustiche degli archi e la caratteristica chitarra elettrica (con Ebow) di Cramer. Buon Ascolto! (Marco)
