Only a download away, Sono Luminus is excited to announce it’s first Digital Only EP featuring the GRAMMY® nominated ZOFO and the exciting Del Sol String Quartet. This split EP features three World Premiere recordings and is ready for you on demand and at your fingertips.
The EP starts with a combined piece by composer Kui Dong, bearing the title of the EP “Shall We Play”. This piece combines the two ensembles with an exciting mix of piano-four-hands, string quartet and two toy pianos (performed partially by Kui Dong herself for this recording).
The second and third pieces on the disc are two movements from Mason Bates’ work, Bagatelles for String Quartet and Electronica. Del Sol, who gave the piece’s world premiere earlier this year, gives us a tantalizing taste with this movement; the entire work will be released digitally later this year.
Finally, the GRAMMY® nominated team of ZOFOduet blazes through the piece “Vaporize” by composer Joe Duddel. All of the pieces presented on this CD are world premiere recordings.
This release signifies the first of what Sono Luminus plans to be many upcoming digital only releases. This Split EP not only combines two of the hottest groups on the Sono Luminus roster, but is also being released in conjunction with their full length albums: ZIA by Del Sol String Quartet, available in February, and Mosh Pit (the follow up to the GRAMMY® nominated album Mind Meld) by ZOFO, available in April 2013.
