Members of some of our favourite electronic music groups are getting together to produce a modern take on an experimental composition from 1969.
Dan Snaith from Caribou, Joe Goddard from Hot Chip, Sam Shepherd – better known as Floating Points, Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys, and James Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco are amongst the 10 piece synthesiser ensemble reproducing ‘Tactus Tempus’ a piece by composer Frank L McCarty. Each member of the group will be helming a different synthesiser to produce two separate 15 minute tracks, one tonal, and one noisy.
We’re very intrigued by what this will end up sounding like, so the album’s release on March 17th on Geej Recordings can’t come soon enough. We’ll keep you posted.
