Bartok - ReOrganised reimagines selected works of Hungarian composer Bela Bartok, for a modern electric ensemble. As the name might suggest, Immortal Machinery's arrangements put a Hammond organ at the heart of the music, with support from violin, piano and a jazz rhythm section.
Bartok's writing is at times playful and improvisatory, but elsewhere makes for brutal and uncompromising listening - the perfect source material for a pair of musicians longing for a challenge during the Covid lockdown.
In the Youtube upload of this EP, Mateusz and Steph provide behind the scenes commentary between each track.
