“Revolutions In The Head” represents the almost transcendental result of “Discipline In The Studio” as members of The Big City Orchestra, Legendary Pink Dots And Frans De Waard (Modelbau, Kapotte Muziek and much more) came together to create a stream of 60 minute soundtracks for a TV station in San Francisco.
If that sounds like a recipe for chaos, think again. The level of concentration applied was almost terrifying, but the satisfaction displayed when the clock hit the magical 60 minute mark seemed like a glorious release.
All the music here was recorded in The Silverman’s Attic studio.
Das and Ninah of Big City Orchestra instigated the project and flew to The Netherlands for the recording sessions.
The first hours involved them, The Silverman and Frans, while Edward Ka-Spel joined for the last part of the penultimate session and the final hour. Edward had literally just stepped off the train from London, tiptoed upstairs at the studio, unpacked his keyboard and various devices, connected the wires as soundlessly as possible and found his patch in the cauldron. The “Hellos” were delayed as only 30 minutes had passed of that particular musical voyage.
When the music was over, there seemed to be a general consensus that this meeting of minds needed to be heard by a wider audience. A big thank you to Frans for the hours he spent editing to make this release possible.
