Struktura Revisited - Scanner (Robin Rimbaud) International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

As with many artists during lockdown I pursued many possible projects, with opportunities that might otherwise not have been possible. I’ve long been an admirer of the work of Polish composer Olga Wojciechowska and in conversation she suggested my reworking her beloved Strië album which was originally released in 2015. Olga sent me sounds and stems of the original pieces, which I then transformed live in the studio using hardware, stripping the melodies and textures to their original essence, bringing an entirely analogue element to Olga’s intrinsically detailed originals. The results were released on a double LP in 2022 on A Strangely Isolated Place label in the USA. This is the first time I’ve explored the material in front of a live audience.
