ELIZABETH VIROSA & GIULIANA FUNKHOUSER ‘MMXXI’ 

May 11, 2022 | Electronica, Reviews

A early vivid electronic experience

When Michael Faber’s Under The Skin novel reached the big screen were you paralysed by the chilling lamentations of Mica Levi’s soundtrack? It enhances both the visuals and narrative, as well as being a formidable listen in its own right. The duo of Elizabeth Virosa (Snowbeasts) and Giuliana Funkhouser are capable of such a soundtrack. And should Faber’s The Book Of Strange New Things receive a screen adaptation, get these two signed up. Those who have read it will know the isolation, revelation, and redemption, the main protagonist encounters on an alien planet, and this pair are up to the task. 
 
The tangible textures and emotions displayed on MMXXI don’t occur by accident, but emerge when craft, experience, and creative risk taking come together. The desolation woven into Coriolis Storm is palpable and we don’t want to ever be in the path of whatever is buzzing around in Swarm To The Devil’s Tower. 
 
It’s electronica with a soft focus industrial energy, coloured by existential fear, making for a darkly vivid experience.
