EP ONE was commissioned and curated by Galya Bisengalieva featuring new works for solo violin and electronics using the instrument as a tool to create new and innovative sounds. All tracks are composed by UK based living artists.

Track 1 - "tùs" was written by Claire M Singer, a composer, producer and performer of acoustic and electronic music (cello and organ), film and installations. 'tùs' means 'beginnings' in Scottish Gaelic and was inspired by Glencoe a jaw-dropping glen of volcanic origin in the Highlands of Scotland. The looped and mania;ated layers of violin to create textural journey across a vast landscape.

Track 2 - "Tulpar" was written by Galya Bisengalieva. "Tulpar" is a winged horse in Kazakh mythology (corresponding to the Pegasus of the Greeks) which speaks to Galya's roots. The track uses the violin as a rhythmic instrument to invoke mythical creature of steppes life.

Track 3 - "Oparin" was composed by Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch. She is signed to FatCat's classical imprint 130701 for her solo work and her second album 'Époques' was released on 13 July 2018. For the track "Oparin" Emilie was inspired by Alexander Ivanovich's theories about the origins of life in the early Earth's 'primordial soup' expounded in his classic book 'The Origin of Life'. Oparin was a Soviet biochemist.
