Dollboy - Tuning Loops

Awkward Formats


09 Feb 2014

Tuning Loops was the result of a commercial job where I was asked by Ben Eshmade of Arctic Circle to make some music for a podcast he was recording about The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. I went to a rehearsal of Handel's Messiah and recorded them in rehearsal. I later used the recordings of them tuning up to make loops over which I improvised with a series of instruments. It's still one of my favourite records. It was released as an LP and download.
