I suppose we all know the legendary Orch sample on the Fairlight was taken from Stravinsky's "Firebird". We thought it could be fun to actually use this sample in a recording of "Firebird".....

The Orch sample has been taken from Arturia's CMI V, all the other sounds are performed using a Arturia Modular V softsynth.

Total highbrow insanity. Robots could be dancing to this someday.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the plaudits and the special award.....LOL....

We were going for a "highbrow" feel and very much in a Tomita style, a piece I suppose you could make a 100 mistakes and would any one notice, and anyway, aren't we all desperate to use the ORCH sample just once....

Stravinsky would have loved it. Great fun.

It's 00:14 and this is the best piece of music I've heard today. I imagine that this statement will still be true in 1425 minutes.

Good work :)

Hi everyone

PHEW....Such praise, I am really shocked. A comparison to Zappa and praise from Stravinsky, I am tempted to retire from music right now....it's all downhill from here? A fun piece to record though, playing it was difficult enough, how Stravinsky composed it in the first place is mind numbing....
