Aftershock is a collaborative effort by violinist/composer extraordinaire Mia Zabelka, Vienna and extreme metal bassist/guitarist Arun Natarajan aka Icostech, Bangalore which reflect their respective styles and playing, equal parts of soothing ambiance, textures make way for improvised parts created predominantly from violin and bass guitar. Adding to this concoction is Trumpet veteran Joshua Trinidad from Denver and Asferico from Spain.
Juxtaposed with a vibe of post apocalyptic "illegal" but now "legal" gatherings, in another dimension this could also be considered as an aural theatrical play which has preludes, repetitions, interludes and chapters.
Aftershock gently caresses never before heard hard ambient with free improvisation, techno and experimental electronic music all in a single bullet packed into a solid 60 minute effort meant to be heard from beginning to end in a single sitting to grasp the true intentions of this release.
