'Ngoma Lungundu' the 4-movement electronic opus influenced by DJ-Club and Video Game music, alongside the 28-minute '7th Sense' for bass and interactive electronic fields, featuring Swiss contrabassist, Cristin Wildbolz.

'Ngoma Lungundu' premiered with interactive video projections opening the 2008 "NewMusic+" festival in Brno, Czech Republic. Created as an outdoor performance that intertwines with the sounds and lights of an urban landscape, the work has been recreated at 3 festivals across the US in a variety of unusual spaces, including a multilevel parking garage.

'7th Sense' premiered at the Van Abbemuseum, Netherlands, and the recording was made at Studio Grasland, Haarlem. This remastered release of Wildbolz' performance includes 2 minutes of additional music originally omitted from the Swiss DVD version!
