In the studio last month with players from Weymouth Concert Brass and other local brass bands, performing fragments that will be incorporated into the Portland Bill edition of Variable 4. Pictured below is Ceri from Weymouth Brass on B♭ cornet.
Before last year’s installation, we created an 8tracks mix which included a range of the musical influences behind the piece. We decided to keep with the tradition and repeat the process with a new mix for 2011.
This one is a fairly intimate selection, with piano pieces by György Ligeti, John Tilbury and Eddie Prévost, harmony-drenched electronica from Fennesz and Alva Noto, and a stunning 20-minute final piece which translates Sudoko boards into ethereal piano refrains.
We’re big fans of the 8tracks aesthetic and idea, which picks up from where its sorely missed predecessor Muxtape left off.
Have a listen to our Variable 4 8track mix here and let us know what you think.
