Tomita Style Version Of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring

This is Paul Shillito‘s Tomita-style version of Stravinsky’s The Rite Of Spring Introduction.

Shillito calls this his classitonic style – influenced by the electronic interpretations of classical music done by Isao Tomita and Wendy Carlos in the late 60’s and 70’s.

He plans a complete version of The Rite Of Spring.

Soft synths used on this included the Arturia Minimoog V2, Arturia Moog Modular, Arturia Jupiter 8V, Arturia Yamaha CS80V and soundtoys effects.

Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring – Introduction.

Done in my Classitronic style, Classitronic is what I call electronic classical music with my style being heavily influenced by Isao Tomita.

This is the first part of the classic Stravinsky ballet The Rite of Spring which caused a near riot when it was premiered in Paris on May 29th 1913.

The rest of this work is to follow, so watch this space 🙂

  1. Very nicely done and creatively "synth-y" where Tomita tends to emulate the traditional instruments involved more closely. Its a good direction to take with such an abstract work. I hope you'll be able to manage the entire thing. I'll be keeping an eye out for it.
