BENFORD, DOUGLAS - IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE PRINCESS (CD)


"Probably better known under his moniker si-cut.db, Douglas Benford demonstrates on this sixth episode of the Carbon Series a sensitive approach to contemporary electronic composition, a side of his work that was not revealed to the public before. Most probably influenced by his reci-process (biphop) collaborateur and long-time friend Stephan Mathieu, (who did the analogue mastering) here Benford treats environmental sound of the cities with various field recordings, that he collected while touring. Douglas Benford refrains from his wellknown rhythms, deprives his compositions of all elements that one usually would associate with si-cut.db's sound of minimal dance and what remains is the reverberation of the plane and the sound of organically growing structures with only traces of his love for the electronic sound of dub - his signature."
