Album Review

Modern Institute “Excellent Swimmer” [Expanding Records] (33rpm)

nic   9/16/2006   A Library

Modern Institute is the new project by Teho Teardo (guitar, Rhodes, electronics) and Cellist Martina Bertoni. Electronics and cello weave a dreamy, cinematic score for a lazy afternoon. Side one is more upbeat melodic with cello and glitchy electronics call/response. Side two is slower and more atmospheric.

1: dancing sine waves 7: cold metal fingers
2: electronic smoke signals 8: dark skies beckon
