Ambient Music: James Kelly Ft. Ola Szmidt Transformation Remix EP

February 12, 2015

Transformation James Kelly

Following on from the Healing Remix EP, I released the Transformation Remix EP Ft. Ola Szmidt. The EP features the original track, along with remixes from Ed Dowie, MSB and Hervé Perez. The original is an ambient drone piece featuring the Polish singer Ola Szmidt on vocals and Dave Dhonau on cello. Ed Dowie’s mix creates a new vocal lament and MSB takes the track deep into glitch territory, while Hervé Perez extends the three minute track into a 17 minute epic, allowing the listener space to focus on individual textures from the original track, while adding saxophone arrangements and glitch drums. The release is available on my bandcamp page.

Both Dave Dhonau and Ola from Muted Fnord feature heavily on my album, so it will be a pleasure to support them at this gig.
