Ithaca has finally arrived back home with this beautiful orchestral version of Turning Point. Thank you Noordpool Orkest for the beautiful sounds and thank you SixteenbyNine for the lovely registration video!
This feels like coming home: an official orchestral version of one of the tracks from the ‘Ithaca’ EP. An EP that was written with a lot of orchestral instruments, and with a sound-design/mixdown esthetic that almost has more in common with the dynamic sound of the orchestra than some of my and Amon’s music in other genres that are more focused on drums and impact.
The Turning Point recording by Noorpool Orchestra is out today on VISION! You can also watch the beautiful corresponding video on self – titled here.
Mahnoor Kavian has given us a behind the scenes look in her lab in this making-of for the departure video. The making process is so cool to watch! And the result even better
Iris Van Herpen and Nationaal Ballet commissioned this short movie “Biomimicry”. Ryan McDaniels directed it, and I composed the music with some help from Salvador Breed and a harp part by the lovely Lavinia Meijer. Thanks to all involved, I’m so proud of this amazing team and this result!

Out now! My new record “Ithaca” with my pal Amon Tobin. Ithaca is a 20 year voyage in 20 minutes of music, it’s an exploration of melody, synthesised sound, and vocal and orchestral textures. We’re offering vinyl, artwork poster and digital lossless audio besides the usual streaming options, on bandcamp and on the VISION webstore. The amazing artwork is by Karol Khomatech with art direction from Nik Roos. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen, and I hope you all enjoy the record! xT
