sample the album:
Two violists - Cyprien Busolini and Frantz Loriot - both of whom work in a variety of context including improvisation, dance, video, mime, &c. The two met in the interest of working with "their instrumental double" to create a common sound universe from the same instrument played by two different personalities. Using non-traditional and extended techniques the two create an intense world of string sound uniquely their own.
