Sydney, Australia – work included in Making art public: 50 years of Kaldor Public Art Projects

New album with Molly Berg coming in November. Guest musicians: Justin Alexander, Jennifer Choi, Marcus Fischer, Mike Grigoni. Available for pre-order

the resulting music doesn’t sound abstract or artificial—far from it. It’s mesmerizing, atmospheric, lush and melodic, often unfolding slowly over drifting harmonies and languorous washes of electronic sound. Berg’s voice is evocative and nicely complemented by the resonant sounds of Vitiello’s guitar and Rhodes piano, as well as by Choi’s violin and Grigoni’s steel guitars. https://avantmusicnews.com/
