Have you ever heard of…
…Steve Reich, the composer? Why, of course you have! Well, for some reason unknown to us, we have been experiencing an inexplicable urge to make an edit of one of his tracks, called Electric Counterpoint: III. Fast.
We wanted to make our own version of this beautiful piece of music, adding beats and bass, and at the same time stay 100% true to the original arrangement. However, for our needs, we respectfully (although some might say cheekily) altered the whole song from a 3/4 to a 4/4 time signature. Not unlike how The Orb did it in their 90′s classic Little Fluffy Clouds. Actually, editing and experimenting with this piece of music turned out to be great fun!
So much fun, in fact, that we wanted to depart further from the original, and create yet another version. This time, using the tone quality of the original sample as a starting point, we embarked on an analog-fueled journey into repetitive madness and harmonic bliss.
Because of this, dear readers, we can now present you with two separate tracks of the month.
Best, Señor B + Señor B
