Rebuilding the "WANT" mammoth:
Produced in full secret as a surprise track to be premiered only at the Recoil ASHIB Screening Event in Guimarães, 23.11.12.
Both Alan Wilder and the audience didn't knew what was coming their way as the closing track from my warmup live set.
This special version for one of Recoil's most pivotal tracks builds around virtually recorded telephone calls from some of Alan's closest entourage including (in order of appearance) Mauricio Moriarty, Maira Oliva, Christine Thomsi Thomsen, Thomas Köckeis, Tatjana Glück, Kellie Andrews, myself and Rhianna Faye. They all chose one part of the text, but the general idea was each would have to say "and I want" on their native language. Having so much people close to Alan keeping their mouths shut until this piece played for the very first time was no easy task - but we've achieved it somehow:)
Rhianna Faye had the extra responsibility of being the new Nicole Blackman (all due respect), but I believe you will all agree she's done the job perfectly - let me just say her recording was a one take only file - wow!
Answering machine voices are Apple's TextEdit app running Text-to-Speech and choosing between two English spoken voices (male and female). Answering machine bleeps from effects libraries. The orchestration was made in Logic Pro using 4 tracks for French Horn sections, 1 for Steinway Grand Piano, 1 for Electric Bass, 2 for Staccato Strings and other 2 for Orchestral Percussion - all from Logic's internal library.
The rest ran along a series of interconnections between Ableton Suite and Logic. Plugins and Virtual instruments include Native Instruments, Sonic Charge, GForce, LinPlug.
Voices were recorded via Soundcloud, Audacity (as suggested) or other form chosen by each of the "callers".
Facebook was the meeting place.
This was originally meant NEVER to be repeated again.
Track is now public to listen and comment.
The original suspects are also free to expose their experience.
Thank you all, no exceptions!
