Multitalented musicians Johannes Brecht and Christian Prommer have collaborated on a release inspired on the idea to compose Techno and havit performed by an orchestra.
For the project, Brecht and Prommer met in Berlin several times to compose the music for a concert, make the ensemble recordings, and develop a collective sound, through which the idea obtained its unique style. The result was ‘Voix Grave’.
Both artists created club versions creating a connection to the cover artwork: ‘Portrait 13’ by contemporary English artist Nick Gentry Art. Both, the music and the portrait, work with the utilization of pre-existing elements to create something new. Reciprocity of digital and analogue; visually from floppy disc to paint and musically from classical to electronic sound.
The original composition features echoing drums, plucked violins and an emotive cello. Whilst it may surprise those who associate Diynamic with its more dancefloor-ready releases, the classical inclusion is a testimony to the label’s forward-thinking approach.
‘Voix Grave’ as a package is an innovative project, with both versions accentuating the qualities of the original whilst providing genuinely club-appropriate takes on the record. It’s further evidence of Diynamic’s commitment to their creative vision, even as the label continues to expand to global proportions.
