More press for collaboration with BT
I had good feedback from the team who ran the recording sessions in Prague, and I can’t wait to hear the results.
The most recent press on this project is here. Some excerpts:
“How do you take a synthesizer and cello, completely different instruments, and get them to co-inhabit the same sonic space? Can analog and digital both effectively transcend one another until they’re flowing interchangeably?. . .
“From the genesis of the modern crowdfunding movement, BT has had the idea that direct fan support might be the way to finally bring this type of musical experience to life. And so he set, and has now met, a goal of $200,000 to cover all the costs—all of which are itemized on the project’s Kickstarter page. . . The project has managed six $10,000 backers, a record in the music category.
“It’s not just taking old electronic songs and re-doing them with an orchestra, however. The Electronic Opus was a catalyst to create new songs and sounds with a familiar baseline. ‘There will be parts of the original songs, plus orchestra, plus new instruments, sounds (and some vocals) all mixed together as new arrangements that will live and breathe on their own as new pieces,’ explains [producer Tommy] Tallarico.”
