The perfect introduction to the fiery, powerful electric cello.
OVERVIEW Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument recorded at 3 dynamic layers and 3 bowing positions with a host of "artisan" articulations, and many additional techniques, This electric cello encapsulates the soul and searing talent of electric cellist, Peter Gregson. With a whole host of experimental techniques pumped through the most extraordinary signal paths, the seven month adventure that is Igneous is the perfect introduction into the inspiring, fiery and searing world of the electrified cello.
BACKGROUND Gregson is a cellist and composer "working at the forefront of the new music scene" (The New Yorker) Recently, he has premiered works by composers including Tod Machover, Daníel Bjarnason, Joby Talbot, Gabriel Prokofiev, Max Richter, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Steve Reich, Martin Suckling, Milton Mermikides, Howard Goodall, John Metcalfe, Scott Walker, and Sally Beamish; he also collaborates with many of the world’s leading technologists, including Microsoft Labs, UnitedVisualArtists, Reactify and the MIT Media Lab. He also fits into the Spitfire ethos of being a technologist at the front line of media composition by having recently completed scoring his first feature film, 'A Little Chaos', directed by Alan Rickman and starring Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Matthias Schoenaerts and Stanley Tucci.
FEATURES Adopting techniques we learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag" and the idea of making a concept album without making any of the music. Just the building blocks, the DNA with Leo's "Enigma". And our first venture with the inventive smouldering and youthful chaps at Pixel Studios, who have created some truly inspiring signal paths for you to play with, Spitfire are proud to present one of the most extraordinary projects we've embarked on to-date.
Centred around a sophisticated virtual instrument recorded at 3 dynamic layers and 3 bowing positions with a host of "artisan" loops, and additional techniques, Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is Peter. And with a whole host of experimental techniques, we feel the 7 month adventure that is Igenous is the perfect introduction into the inspiring, fiery and searing world of the electrified cello.
