Sunday Synth Jam: This is a track from Dean De Benedictis’s project, Travels Rendered, that was aired on British radio program Sunday Synth.
The track/song is an improvised ambient piece that was performed and recorded live, in an alpine canyon near Provo, Utah, by Dean De Benedictis and Nyle Steiner (inventor of the EWI).
To create this piece, both men hiked up into the mountains with their gear, and then Steiner plugged his EWI and synth module into an audio card for Dean’s laptop studio (which runs Ableton Live and Reactor). Both men then preceded to improvise. The canyon was elevated in the mountains east of Provo, and it was a gray day.
