Cold Genius

A 3 track ambient single (24m 8s) — released February 23rd 2015 on Other Records Ltd

Cold Genius - Discrete Machines

Inspired by a famous scene in the poet John Drydon's semi-opera of 1684 "King Arthur or, the British Worthy" Discrete Machines Cold genius takes the original music by Henry Purcell - which modulates across an incredible range of keys during a very short space of time - but here, the score is played very slowly using spectral freezing techniques to elongate each chord so that the temporal domains are distorted to leave only ghosts of the original. Incorporating accidental sound and glacial voices the result is a haunted evocation of the 'Cold Genius' - the spirit of winter.
