'Stroke by Stroke' is not for the faint of heart either. Those expecting gentle plucking to emerge from her zither will be surprised, to say the least. Chatzigoga uses objects, preparations, e-bows and other tools to extract large and confronting soundscapes from her instrument, and here she lays down, track by track, different combinations of techniques, contrasted with each other in the context of the album while at the same time laying them against the ambient sounds of the city -which she sublty allows to slip through to the recording. What results is a poetic and suggestive work that serves as the best introduction yet to Chatzigoga's soundworld.
