UDO Audio shared this live performance by synthesist Hazel Mills of Bloom, an original composition, inspired by the music of classical composer Steve Reich.
Here’s what they shared about the technical details of the performance:
“The excellent Hazel Mills has composed a performance entitled ‘Bloom’, performing on the Super 6 Keyboard and Desktop.
Taking inspiration from Steve Reich, Hazel built this Minimalist composition by programming a simple, repeating sequence on the Desktop with subtle variation. Over time, with the addition of an intertwining arpeggio and gorgeous pad on the Keyboard, this progression accumulates and builds into an uplifting, hypnotic sequence, made all the better by a simple four-to-the-floor kick.”
Reich’s minimalist work has long been an inspiration for electronic musicians, ranging from Tangerine Dream to The Orb to Pantha du Prince.
