Richard Galbraith’s Polyphony is a collection of 11 works, by Tallis, Byrd, de Lassus and others, arranged for modular analog synthesizer. Gailbraith doesn’t go the ‘switched on’ route, instead creating arrangements that – while definitely electronic – have more of an organic, orchestral feel.
Here’s a preview of the album:
- Modular synthesizer: Richard Galbraith
- Violin (Nesciens mater virgo virum, O salutaris hostia) and keyboard (Gloria): Rene Romig
In his notes for the album, Galbraith thanks names that will be familiar to many modular synth owners: Roger Arrick, Synthesizers.com; Bryan Benting; John Burdick, Grove Audio; Phil Petschke, MegaOhm Audio; Paul Schreiber, MOTM/Synthesis Technology; Doug Slocum, Synthetic Sound Labs.
