UNIKO is the collaboration between the Grammy award winning Kronos Quartet and Finnish duo, accordion adventurer Kimmo Pohjonen and sampling guru Samuli Kosminen. It was commissioned by the Kronos Quartet in 2004 and the present DVD documents the first performance of the suite which was heard for the first time in Helsinki in September 2004. Together with live strings and electric accordion plus effects and manipulations they create a new, multi-dimensional sound world.
"The music is sheer physicality ... Uniko is like an ocean tide coming in." New York Times
"Kimmo Pohjonen is a performer whose blend of virtuosity and resolute experimentation is routinely likened to that of Jimi Hendrix and Laurie Anderson."Wire
