descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Fobia is the second solo album of the Argentinian cellist and composer Violeta Garcia. In the last 7 years Violeta has focused her work on free improvisation exploring the amplified, prepared, expanded and extended violoncello. Violeta describes her album Fobia as a very hyper-sensitive monster. The improvisations were thought and embodied in different types of phobias which give name to the themes of the album. The artist considers this album as a unique piece that marks very important moments in her artistic way/life."-Reative Pitch
