While listening out to Bernard Clarke’s Lyric FM show Nova for the recent Boxcutter Session, Clarke also played an old favourite of mine from Alarm will Sound – The Aphex Twin Acoustic album so I thought I’d mention it here.
Proving the versatility of AFX’s back catalogue, Alarm will Sound, a 20-piece chamber orchestra, composed instrumental versions of Richard D. James’ electronic tunes to devasting effect and in the process, found a commonground between inventive electronica and studiously-serious music halls.
Hear for yourself as the two different versions of “Fingerbib” exist in a remarkably likeable duality.
Happy Pancake Tuesday!
