LUCIDUS (2011): cello rock with an (out)world(ly) twist

Alisa Apreleva’s “Lucidus” originally included 11 compositions for voice, drums and three celli and was recorded, released and premiered in USA, Russia and Mexico in 2010 – 2011.

The album presents a clandestine, atmospheric, if at times too arduous for an uninitiated listener, mosaic of classical, rock, ethnic and sacred music patterns.
