Low Tide Digitals II is the sequel to this non-Norwegian duo's acclaimed 2001 debut album of the same name (RCD 2019). As with the debut, this is an Eno-esque, extremely fine-tuned mix of acoustic instruments and electronic elements. Switzerland-based musicians Luigi Archetti and Bo Wiget have created an album of sensitive, electronically-tinged free improvising. With cello, guitar and electronics, Archetti and Wiget weave a beautiful, detailed and fragile soundscape. Most see references to ambient, electronica and contemporary music but basically this release is beyond categorization. Archetti is a multi-media visual and sound artist, who has been active in both free improv groups and experimental rock since the late 1970s. Currently known as a member of the psychedelic group Guru Guru and also acclaimed for his work as a painter, Archetti has improvised with artists such as Urs Voerkel, Ellen Christi, Magikami Koichi and many others. Possessing a similar rock background, the last decade has seen Bo Wiget working with numerous improvisers including legendary Swiss free saxophonist Werner Lüdi, Czech singer/violinist Iva Bittova, and Japanese guitarist Taku Sugimoto.
