"The music itself is very inclusive.....And being a product of Chesky, it's a lovely production as well." - The Audiophile Man
Commemorating the one year anniversary of the original Chant Electronique album, this special release from Grammy nominated vocalist Ryland Angel and producer David Merrill features the 10 original Chant Electronique album tracks, 10 new instrumental tracks, their recent single 'Ave Maria' as a bonus track, and an expanded digital booklet featuring production photos.
Chant Electronique is a first of a kind record that combines chant with electronics to create something entirely unique. Each track takes an existing liturgical text and sets it to one of Angel's improvised chants, from which Merrill creates an electronic sound painting using analog synthesis. Though unconventional, the end result is hauntingly beautiful, deeply meditative, and stunning, all captured in Chesky Records' standard high-resolution quality.
With the additional instrumental tracks, there is truly something in this package for everyone, whether a fan of liturgical music, classical, new age, electronic, or something in between.
