Grisaille

Envelope Collective



cd

Released: 29th Sep 2017

£11.99


blending artificial intelligence composition with live recordings of more than 24 performers and a student choir, this is a fascinating musical experiment that’s reaped mesmerising results.

migration cinema creates a situation for the musicians in which they navigate a resonant and responsive compositional space, while the space itself is treated as a plastic medium. Alternating between opacity and translucency, monochrome and colour, ‘Grisaille’ conjures a spectral palette reminiscent of Fredrich Cerha, but with an approach to instrumental hybridisation more reminiscent of the electroacoustic worlds of Ana Maria Avram and Iancu Dumitrescu. All the instrumentation was written, scored and orchestrated through computer music methodologies such as algorithmic and generative systems. we recommend this if you enjoy the experimental approaches of greg fox and mica levi.
