Grice One Thousand Birds Symphony CD Richard Barbieri
The one thousand birds Symphony is a collection of compositions and sonic arrangements by art rock musician GRICE.
This special limited edition CD includes a bonus track, the original demo of ‘morning glory' recorded by GRICE at Swanston House onto 4-track tape (1998). The track was later reimagined on the One Thousand Birds album.
Guest contributions (and subsonic jewels) come from Richard Barbieri, Luca Calabrese, Raphael Ravenscroft, Hossam Ramzy, Steve Bingham and more....
Richard Barbieri populates the virtual forest with unique analogue bird sounds created on the System 700 ('A return to specific synth programming'. R.B.)
