    Michael Nyman & David McAlmont - Secrets Accustions & Charges - Max Cooper Deconstruction/Reconstruction

    I wrote these two remixes as a pair, starting only with two audio files, one orchestral part of all the strings, piano etc, and one vocal part of David McAlmont singing. It wasn't easy to tame the parts into an electronic format that I was happy with, so I opted to cut everything up into tiny segments and reconstruct my own track which ended up really different from the original - my "Deconstruction" mix. Then I was faced with the problem of exactly that, that the remix sounded nothing like the original, so I then tried to reconstruct back to the original from the parts I had made - my "Reconstruction" mix. It was an interesting production exercise I guess, not an easy remix job, but hopefully it yielded something interesting.

    It's out now on Last Night on Earth!

    And Nick Cobby has amazed me with his video for the tracks, it's really amazing - He invited people to be 3d mapped at his studio, and then cut there digitised face footage perfectly to the segments of audio I used to create the music - you gotta watch it!! >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khlLc7NNOok
