A novembre “Sólaris” di Ben Frost & Daníel Bjarnason

Uscirà a novembre 2011, per la Bedroom Community, Sólaris di Ben Frost & Daníel Bjarnason. The album is released hot on the heels of Ben’s BY THE THROAT (2009) and Daníel’s PROCESSIONS (2010). The piece was commissioned by the Unsound festival in Krakow and composed for Poland’s leading string orchestra, Sinfonietta Cracovia, plus a gently prepared piano and waves upon waves of guitar. “SÓLARIS is a quiet, stilled and all consuming symphonic suite at once as affecting and uncanny as the science- fiction classic that inspired it. Created through a unique series of processes, Ben & Daníel’s initial sketches —improvised to the film— were fed through software designed to correct music which tried to turn their dense and distorted sonic input into a digital sequence of raw musical data. Working from data riddled with error and misunderstanding, a human score was orchestrated; the whole process deftly mirroring the core of the film’s own narrative of memory and loss, alien doppelgängers and emotional feedback loops. Brian Eno —who consulted closely in the creation of SÓLARIS— also used the same film to create a video accompaniment to this music in another strange loop of computer-generated distortion.” (Fonte: Bedroom Community)
