Centered around a sophisticated virtual instrument recorded at 3 dynamic layers and 3 bowing positions with a host of "artisan" articulations and many additional techniques, Spitfire believe they have encapsulated the very soul that is the searing talent of electric cellist, Peter Gregson. With a whole host of experimental techniques pumped through the most extraordinary signal paths, the 7-month adventure that is Igneous is the perfect introduction into the inspiring, fiery and searing world of the electrified cello.
Gregson is a cellist and composer "working at the forefront of the new music scene" (The New Yorker) Recently, he has premiered works by composers including Tod Machover, Danel Bjarnason, Joby Talbot, Gabriel Prokofiev, Max Richter, J³hann J³hannsson, Steve Reich, Martin Suckling, Milton Mermikides, Howard Goodall, John Metcalfe, Scott Walker, and Sally Beamish; he also collaborates with many of the world' leading technologists, including Microsoft Labs, UnitedVisualArtists, Reactify and the MIT Media Lab. He also fits into the Spitfire ethos of being a technologist at the front line of media composition by having just completed scoring his first feature film, 'A Little Chaos', directed by Alan Rickman and starring Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Matthias Schoenaerts and Stanley Tucci. So he knows what we need to work with.
Adopting techniques learned and perfected with the hugely successful "Andy Findon - Kit Bag" and the idea of making a concept album without making any of the music. Just the building blocks, the DNA with Leo's "Enigma". And Spitfire's first venture with the inventive team at Pixel Studios, who have created some truly inspiring signal paths for you to play with, Spitfire are proud to present one of the most extraordinary projects they've embarked on to-date.
