Mia Zabelka & Icostech - Revisiting Narcolepsy Aftershock

from Being for the Benefit of Kafé Hærverk! by Various Artists


Aftershock is a collaborative effort by violinist 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. Juxtaposed with a vibe of post apocalyptic "illegal" but now "legal" gatherings, Aftershock gently caresses never before heard hard ambient with free improvisation, techno and experimental electronic music all in a single wave packed into a solid almost 20 min set meant to be heard from beginning to end in a single sitting to grasp the intention of this mix, in another dimension this could also be considered as an aural theatrical play which has different chapters signifying the hard ridden path, back to normalcy. Aftershock is a reflection of all the calamities that has struck the people all over the world and the recourse to this pandemic that humans must pursuit now.
