Recorded live at London's RAK Studios,
"A Quartet" comes from a very intimate place reflecting some recent personal life events.
Inspired by minimalism and its developments each track explores different scenarios given by the multiple shades of the string quartet and its capability. Although the strings are the focus here, some other acoustic elements along with more modern and trailer-oriented sounds are included, to offer broader entertainment and a wider spectrum of feelings.
While listening to the full album the listener can experience their own journey, perhaps finding inner battles and dilemmas, sadness, love, and ultimately grit. The album produced and published by Molecular Originals, is now available on all music platforms.
