A week or so ago David posted his interpretation of Prokofiev’s vision fugitives opus 22 section 7 on the Classitronic soundcloud group, its only been today that I have finally had the chance to really listen to it, which i have done several times and it really grown on me.
This is what David says of the piece “Synthesizers used were an Arrick Modular, Oberheim Matrix6, Waldorf MicrowaveXT, Prophet8, Nord Lead2X & Yamaha TX816.
This track is a slowed down version of the seventh segment of the piano opus. The timbre are arbitrary and of course nothing like a piano. Purely straight out of my head.”
As David says it’s nothing like a piano and all the better for it, and excellent orchestration of the sounds gives it s whole new character (note to self, I wouldn’t make a good music critic as I find it difficult to describe in words how a piece like this sounds, I prefer to listen to the music and go on the journey it takes me in my mind rather than write about it).
Very well done and looking forward to hearing more in the future.
David also has a Youtube channel here http://www.youtube.com/user/davidryle where you can see him in action in his studio.
