Critics and audiences agree that Radiohead’s 1997 album OK Computer is a masterpiece. Tracks such as “Karma Police” and “Paranoid Android” forever changed the landscape of alternative radio. Since the LP’s arrival, many writers and artists, including the Portland Cello Project, have deconstructed and analyzed it, bringing about new ways to appreciate the original. Horns, guitars and drums accentuate the Oregonian ensemble’s foundation of emotive cello. Its work bridges the gap between neoclassical refinement and the original album’s pioneering spaced-out rock sound. The Portland Cello Project perform Radiohead’s OK Computer on Tuesday, October 23, at ArtsRiot in Burlington.
