Richard Carr: Music For Four Electric Violins

Richard Carr: Music For Four Electric Violins

Multi-layered, reverb/delay-utilizing compositions for modified violins. The first track reminds me of Jon Hassell, so that immediately piques my interest. Other tracks have kind of a rolling, minimalist rhythm to them, bringing to mind Steve Reich at some moments, and Dustin Wong at others. The middle of the album has calmer, more introspective pieces, but then there’s other pieces that are more effects-driven, creating multiple layers of movement using distortion and panning. Relaxing but still challenging and creative music.
