He presents a transcontinental music project which is an intriguing fusion of electronic and classical sound. BITUMEN [PULSATIONS] presents the least featured of all string instruments, the viola, with four exceptional players, and extends the violas’ sound with generative digital technologies towards a contemporary live-sampling esthetics.
