"Onda", based solely on electric contrabass, is Coti K.'s new work. New in sonic direction and conception, since this is the first time the Greek musician has crafted an organic recording without electronic treatments. Written and recorded in isolation on the island of Tinos, the procedure was simple... layers of the aforementioned stringed instrument creating, either harmonic or textural constructions. The result... a complicated rush of calm yet mysterious bowings that produce warm, round passages of tones and overtones, delicately delivering 7 stories of 4 to 10 minutes long each. Onda means wave in Italian and as such, it draws the essence of this album. This release coincides in time with the artist's new installation called "Suono", held in Athens from February 25 to March 29. More info on "Suono" here: cheapart.gr/coti-k-suono-cheapart.
