a rework of Gustav Mahler's symphonic poemPhilippe Petit: turntables + electronicsKumo (Jono Podmore): theremin + electronics"Post-Classical" soundtrack FOR FANS OF Gustav Mahler – Philip Jeck – Bernhard Herrmann - Luis & Bebe Barron's "Forbidden Planet" - Kumo...In a previous century Gustav Mahler composed a symphony named "Titan". Created in search of a work that echoed industrialism and society in the nineteenth century. Philippe Petit believed that even if firmly rooted into Classical it was announcing what Contemporary music would become so it sounded natural to recontextualize, add new flavours by having something constantly modern in there.Philippe began work on a recording of the original symphony - re-editing, time-stretching, distorting, filtering. He then sent the result to Jono Podmore as a backing track. Who began work with his theremin and electronics by identifying areas he could enhance or develop or even alienate further from their original form, and then set to work improvising and layering new material into the piece, mindful of the collage aesthetic in Mahler's work. Jono sent the results to Philippe who began mixing both works and further processing the result. In a way reminiscent of "2001, A Space Odyssey" offering romantic music in an ultra modern design which set the orchestra in a new space... A little bit like if Bernhard Herrmann had scored the glorious "Forbidden Planet" sci-fi classic, listening to the soundtrack, the Titan you're heading for is Saturn's biggest moon! May the stars be with you... The backing track is now being transcribed for full orchestra by David Plate in Köln as both intend to play the piece live: Philippe Petit and Kumo on electronics with a full symphony orchestra - it should be quite an event...A journalist for various magazines and radio as well as a musical activist, PETIT now celebrates his 25th year of sharing his musical passions Pursuing a tradition he had started with his "Reciprocess" project, given away with The Wire magazine issue 301, Petit is benefiting from the talent of Jono Podmore, aka KUMO, who has been part of the electronic scene since the 80's and collaborates with Irmin Schmidt from the legendary Can.
