William Ryan Fritch is a film composer, recordist, songwriter, and multi -instrumentalist living in Oakland, Ca. He records under the moniker Vieo Abiungo for Lost Tribe Sound Records, is a member of the trio Skyrider, the experimental post-hop outfit Sole and the Skyrider Band, and is a go to guy for a number of other recording artists and producers. Since 2008 he has scored nearly thirty films, several of which have premiered in film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, Toronto, Los Angeles and Copenhagen.

Music for Honey and Bile is an album of filmic works in which unfettered optimism is loomed out of spectral melancholy, and the unflattering ruddy of such sanguineness stands naked in the midst of the noxious ether.

All pieces composed, performed, mixed and recorded by William Ryan Fritch.
