- archaea strings: in bilico
(2009, cd, italy, materiali sonore 99085)
The quintet performs Frank Zappa's 'Alien Orifice' on their "In Bilico" album. It's the first track on the CD.
The ensemble has Damiano Puliti on the cello. A name that you might remember from the Harmonia Ensemble. His 'Frank Lesson', a Zappa tribute that's on the "Harmonia Plays Zappa" album, is also performed by Archaea Strings. And the ensemble recorded a composition by his Harmonia-colleague Orio Odori as well.
"In Bilico" offers en ensemble playing and mixing rock, jazz and classical music. Nice.
I love their rendition of 'Alien Orifice' and it's great to hear Damiano Puliti's 'Frank Lesson' by the string quintet.
