Have a listen to this pretty incredible piece of music from Ghostly International artist Xeno & Oaklander
National Center for the Arts of Grenoble, France, commissioned Xeno & Oaklander to score an original piece of sound design entitled ‘Movements’. It aired during the museum’s online radio exhibition entitled ‘Take You There Radio’, in June 2015.
Recorded live at the Xeno & Oaklander analog synth studio in Brooklyn, the 35 minute piece was inspired by travel in space and time. Field recordings gleaned during their travels are mixed in. The work is largely situated around the use of the Serge Modular and the new Sequential Prophet 6. Synth guitar washes abound with spacious string hooks, ethereal vocals, shamanistic drums and arpeggios with echoes of early Philip Glass.
