Moving Furniture Records released the boxset 44 x 44 – Orphax reworked with great compositions by 7 friends, and one by myself based on my 44 x 44 sketches.
Here are the words I wrote for the labels’ website:
4 CDs with compositions created using 44 sounds of 44 seconds by Orphax as source material, by TVO / Ruaridh Law, Modelbau, Fani Konstantinidou, Machinefabriek, Jos Smolders, Elif Yalvaç, Siavash Amini and Orphax.
When I started working on my 44 sketches of 44 seconds already quickly came the idea to ask friends to create music with these 44 sketches. The idea is to take musicians from their comfort zone, and have them experiment and think in different ways about composing music. The result is beyond my imaginations, with the 7 other musicians creating something completely new, different from their regular work, but also each with their own fingerprint. I am proud of what my friends made out of this.
Over 4 hours of new daring music.
