"Landscape Architecture"

From Replicant

Wires Under Tension is a duo based in New York’s South Bronx. Combining homegrown audio sampling instruments with ferocious beats and adventurous orchestration, WUT’s angular gymnastics reflect the raw energy of their home turf. Multi-instrumentalist, classical composer and software engineer Christopher Tignor switches dextrously between violin, keyboards, bass and the rest of his arsenal, while Theo Metz extracts brutal truths from the kit.
