theremin, effects + voice, low whistle, chimes





 

Chris Conway - Quadelectronic 63

Unearthly Orchestra.
Gently wafting ambient adagios of sound from theremin and effects.


background
It's very easy to get carried away on the theremin - there is no resistance of your hands in the air - excess is easy. One night I just set up some a few chords rotating on multiple long delays and through a slowly moving filter - went away and got on with other things - I came back and it was still going, I then realised the minimalism of it was really beautiful.

So I set about recording a whole album of ambient restrained pieces like that. I changed a few small things from track to track - added voice, low whistle or chimes sparingly for a little extra colour, changed the order of the effects - on one track I used sounds, on another I added an arpegiated filter work on the sound. But generally I wanted a similar feel throughout. Listening back made me think of classcial string sections and adagios, hence the title.
