Quantet - with Tom Hodge - FIELDS by Max Cooper published on 2013/10/25 11:50:53 +0000 This track started with some interesting strings recordings Tom made, where he arranged the instruments in terms of their frequency range, from the lowest in the centre to the highest on the edges. He provided my with a few unused recordings of this session and I sort of brutalised them, in as much as the end result sounds nothing at all like the original recordings. I just liked the timbre and texture that occurred when I cut them up, with each hit being a complex mixture of chords, one bleeding into the other so that a lot of the samples are quite impure melodically. It just turned into an experiment of what I could do with these odd melodic units, or quanta of the original tentet, hence the name - Quantet. In the end I went for a very simple stripped back approach, nothing too unexpected or complex in this one, but hopefully a nice mood, that was the aim anyway.
