Blogariddims 7: Voices from Afar

This time it’s Rambler‘s turn. I’ve really been looking forward to hearing how he’d put it together. He says:

Mixing avant-classical stuff is a bit unusual, and without many examples for comparison (if anyone knows where I can get a copy of Murcof’s demo mix tape from back in 2002, I think, please let me know!) I’m still feeling my way a bit. The first thing is that usual concerns such as tempo and key go out of the window. On the whole you’re not dealing with beats – and even when you are, it’s not music that was meant to be beatmatched – and you’re not usually dealing with a straightforward sense of key. So don’t worry about these things. What you do have, however, is a particularly acute sense of musical pacing and momentum…

… And he does. It’s fantastic.
