Phase Duo is Aut Now

PHASE DUO‘s first album is out now. The duo, made up by violin player and composer Eloisa Manera and producer and sound designer Stefano Greco, combines minimal music (Reich and Riley as major influences), live electronics and Indian Raga inspired music. At the core of the project we find different elements, grouped in dialectical pairs: analog/digital, acoustic/electronics, micro/macro, order/disorder are some of these dichotomies that play a role in the conceptual world of the duo. The album is available on cd and digital download.
