Archestra - Arches

SKU Soleil Mutant 38
Rational Diet were a chamber rock/RIO-styled band from Belarus, who released 3 very well liked albums on the AltrOck label. They seem to have imploded somewhat nastily, with the result being two bands arising from the ashes: Five-Storey Ensemble and Archestra.

This is the debut release by The Archestra, and it is the debut release of a new sub-label of the great Soleil Zeuhl label which will focus beyond Zeuhl and will reach into Rock In Opposition and other innovative music!

The band consists of Nadia Krystia-voice, Kirill Krystia-violin, cello, Vitaly Appow-bassoon, Ivan Lichko-piano, Arlem Frenkel-bass, Nikolay Semitko-drums, with other musicians as guests on other instruments, but this is the basic line-up.

This is more electric than Five-Storey Ensemble. As the record label hype says: "This new work continues the excellent series started with the 3 Rational Diet albums : electric chamber rock with Henry Cow and Univers Zero hints. Superb mastering work by Udi Koomran. Modern RIO at its best."

Here's a live clip of the band!
