2 women, one Czech, one Polish who both play cellos and sing. But there's a lot to be got from that seemingly minimal instrumentation and these pieces are remarkably flexible, expressive and persuasive throughout. The medium is openly structured songs - with much use of additive rhythms and stretched techniques. There are some inevitable echoes of Iva Bittova here, of course, given the instrumentation and history of the region, but essentially this is an original and imaginative record.
