Using extended techniques on viola and piano, Charlotte Hug and Frederic Blondy draw the listener into unusual and encompassing sound worlds that feel electronic, yet are created through acoustic improvisation.

Hug, Charlotte & Frederic Blondy

Hug, Charlotte & Frederic Blondy: Bouquet (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Both Charlotte Hug (viola and voice) & Frédéric Blondy (piano) use extended techniques on their respective instruments making their duo sound like no other. The feeling varies from agitated and fast to calm and still, and the sound world from acoustic to electronically mysterious even though no electronic manipulation is used. The CD is summed up in Dan Warburton's notes as 'top-notch music made by two outstanding performers with exceptional ears for pitch, rhythm, timbre and structure at the micro and macro level.'"-Emanem
