What a joy to see Montréaler Nicolas Bernier join the roster of Portuguese label Crónica! strings.lines features five interrelated electroacoustic works using recordings of Pierre-Yves Martel on viola da gamba and Chris Bartos on violin. Stretched-out sounds, explosive sounds, nothing static, the music moves a lot — literally and figuratively. Music with deep bewitching resonances. I like a lot.
