"MD Pallavi is a South-Indian singer and one of the most prominent protagonists of the traditional music scene in and around Bangalore. Andi Otto (aka Springintgut) has collaborated with her in the past years in various theatre productions, and soon the world will hear their first track together. It's very good, and there is more to come in 2016! Otto's composition for "Bangalore Whispers" creates the spine for Pallavi's virtuoso performance of carnatic (traditional South-Indian) syllables. The track pulses on 95 bpm with an organic cluster of piano, cello and psalterium strings, over which the vocals erupt in a mesmerizing solo in the middle of the track. The B-side "6-6-6-5" is made exclusively for this 7inch release. It builds upon a one-line-sample from a vintage Indian movie soundtrack and amplifies this energy into a euphoric rhythm to which Otto bows the strings of a Psalterium (A beautiful east european string instrument, which Otto plays with two bows. It actually sounds similar to a sitar, when it's plucked). Andi Otto from Hamburg, Germany, has recorded several albums under the moniker Springintgut in the past decade. For the sake of pronunciation, he will use his actual name from now on." (label info)
