Berlin-based experimental ensemble s t a r g a z e is gearing up to release their much anticipated One, an orchestral suite composed for them by Tyondai Braxton, Nik Colk Void, Greg Saunier, Arone Dyer and Aart Strootman. Following the monumental Recollection Pulse #3’ composed by Nik Colk Void, s t a r g a z e have shared a second single, ‘Voicecream’, composed by Arone Dyer. She comments:

“it was such a foreign process to create – I typically write in real time, improvising with others, but this piece I wrote alone on Ableton, mostly with my vocals and MIDI, creating what I thought sounded like a realistic arrangement. Then, knowing nothing of the range or key of the instruments, I worked with trumpet / horn player Romain Bly to arrange the piece for s t a r g a z e, and we sent individual parts along with a click track to each of the performers to record on their own. Without a conductor some interesting twists and turns came about which I had to correct in post-production. I tried to make all the individually recorded instruments sound like they were coming from the same place. I learned so much in the process and it was really fun.”

Listen to ‘Voicecream’ below and watch out for the release of One on November 25th through Transgressive Records.
