Scape Marvin Ayres cd
Recorded at the illustrious Air Edel Sudios, the project started out as a series of string-driven pieces, provisionally entitled 'Clusters'. In collaboration with its director, Marvin adapted several of these non-rhythmic soundscapes for use in the film 'Scape' (part of 'Sensory').
  
Subsequently deciding to input a percussive element (pursuing an 'anti-pulse' approach), a series of radical remixes based on the material emerged.
 
Fusing orthodox and off-kilter beats with city-scape cacophony, yet remaining defiantly ambient in its approach, Scape is a hybrid of music specifically developed for the DVD film 'Scape' and Marvin Ayres unique take on the art of the remix.
 
The CD is housed in a full colour card pochette.
 
Reviews:
 
'Marvin Ayres offers a new experience, not only to the ear, but also to the eye.' Eclipsed
 
'A landscape recognizable yet alien - a visual rhythmic structure matched by the pulsing processed violin and picked arpeggios of Ayres' excellent and varied accompanying soundscape.'  Grave Concerns
