Actress X London Contemporary Orchestra
the level of intricate, electronic mastery at work here is astounding! actress has outdone himself with an incredibly ambitious record that tempers his more challenging, atonal excursions with more melodic, almost relaxing orchestral manipulations.
The music creates a synergy between both live electronic and acoustic components, not just in the harmonies but in the way the traditional instruments were spliced into new hybrid instruments. As part of the process, Actress and LCO augmented traditional piano and created sounds from objects as varied as temple bowls and plastic bags. For the album, LCO recorded the individual instrumental parts as stems at Spitfire Studio then sent them to Actress to manipulate, in turn delivering some truly unique new pieces. fans of gazelle twin, autechre and Dedekind cut will adore this!
