Vidna Obmana - An Opera for Four Fusion Works, Act 4
Title: An Opera for Four Fusion Works, Act 4
(The Bowing Harmony, feat. Steven Wilson)
Label: Hypnos Recordings
It's available now!
2007. The fourth and final installment in vidnaObmana's ambitious "Opera For Four Fusion Works" project. Each "act" of this project involves vidnaObmana's reworking and recycling audio sources from different collaborators.
Act I used guitar pieces from Dreams in Exile, Act II used Bill Fox's saxophone recordings, Act III worked from the foundation of Kenneth Kirschner's piano works, and this last installment utilizes the voice of Steven Wilson ( No-Man, Porcupine Tree, and the artist behind Bass Communion). Even those who are thinking "I don't like voice with my ambient music" will really love this. It's one of the most unusual and yet relevant recordings ever released by Hypnos, in which a very recognizable sound, the human voice, is progressively transformed from the familiar, into stranger and more "ambient" atmospheres. It's captivating & beautiful.
The usual disclaimer applies... this music is not in any real sense "opera" music, and the term is used only to suggest the varied, multi-part quality of this ongoing release.
We're also making available a discounted package of all 4 parts together, for those of you who have not purchased any of the parts along the way.
