About the tracks, Davidson says:
Many of my musical project ideas come from the desire to listen to something that doesn’t currently exist. Music made with a modular synthesizer tends to fall into some fairly well-traveled areas like interpretations of classical music, berlin school electronica or flowing ambient/environmental.
I wanted to hear something layered and multitracked like the classical interpretations, but based on original music, and not shackled to the Baroque. I also wanted the form of the piece to be extended – like, an album side. From experience, I can roughly estimate how long something like this would take. I can produce about one minute of finished multi-track modular synth audio a week. So, an 22-minute piece would take about half a year to complete. Uhhhgggghm.
Davidson’s new tracks offer some fascinating music. It’s safe to say, too, that they are helping to define the state of the art in modular synthesis.
