about

William Ryan Fritch (aka Vieo Abiungo) returns with a gorgeous fifteen track follow-up to 2011’s And the World is Still Yawning. Trying to classify Fritch’s sound by genre has become almost futile. He effortlessly weaves together a huge breadth of earthy beat-laden experimental, classical, and folk. This is the third full-length for Vieo Abiungo, and this newest installment comes in the form of a CD and DVD release titled, Thunder May Have Ruined the Moment.

Fritch enlisted the help of award-winning film director, Pete Monro (Days Together) to create several short experimental films for the DVD. The films offer up thick psychotropic visuals and hazy moss grown memories that seamlessly meld into barrage of twisted imagery and nature based decay. Though the music may sound at times like the product of electronic instrumentation, the entirety of the film and accompanying album’s music was created strictly using acoustic instruments played entirely by Fritch, and recorded primarily using analog tape machines. At times tranquil, tortured, or trembling with quiet joy, Thunder May Have Ruined the Moment is an album of light and shadow, the human experience given voice.
