Switched-On Rite Of Spring

Synthesist Marc Spooner (keyboardist for American symphonic progressive rock band Metaphor) has recorded an all-synthesizer (plus Mellotron) switched-on version of Stravinsky’s Rite Of Spring, in time for the 100th anniversary of the ballet.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of the Wendy Carlos and Tomita and Synergy albums and no one had ever done an electronic version of the entire score of The Rite, so I figured I’d do it myself!”

Spooner adds that his version “was created with a collection of vintage Moog, ARP, and Roland synths with a dash of a modern Kurzweil plus a generous helping of Mellotron.”

Spooner’s A Rite Of Spring is available via Amazon and iTunes.
