Originally performed live as the opening concert of ADE 2016 and broadcast by Boiler Room, this new studio recording delves further into Schwarz’s increasingly formidable orchestral talent, showcasing the incomparable thrill of seamlessly blending acoustic performance with computer generated music. This new development sees Schwarz grow more confident and ambitious as an instrumental composer. Eschewing the term ‘classical’, Schwarz instead captures the movement, emotion and energy he’s mastered across over two-hundred productions and remixes.
Here, in bridging the two worlds of orchestral sounds with computer aided ‘SCRIPTED’ composition, Schwarz has used his intuition to strike upon unexpected qualities surprisingly resonant to the current climate of music, art and society at large. Indeed, album centerpiece, "Counter Culture", written in collaboration with producer, vocalist and friend, Ben Westbeech, is a 'positive protest song' in tribute to the spirit of community and togetherness that music can foster.
