Jurica Jelić - Gray and Blue

Jurica Jelić is a Croatian musician probably best known for his use of the fretless guitar. From there, it's an inevitable step into the world of microtonal music, of xenharmonics, and the granddaddy of all music synthesis languages, csound. Gray and Blue comes from his 2011 release Microtonal Instruments, and it's a surprisingly beautiful piece. Using only simple electronic instruments it contrasts cool, clear melodies with some really bluesy, Louisiana style slurs. The formal primitivism won't appeal to everyone, but I think he handles the limitations of his resources very finely here.
