Classical Music & EDM Collide With Brilliant 'Electronic Opus' Project
Nearly a year ago, composer and technologist Brian Wayne Transeau, better known as B, announced an ambitious Kickstarter project that would meld the seemingly disparate worlds of orchestral and electronic dance music. Titled Electronic Opus, the project would see BT teaming up with video game composer Tommy Talarico and raising over $250,000 to bring the concept into reality.
Electronic Opus will finally be released next week on October 12, and will feature 14 BT tracks re-imagined within a classical setting, merging the bleeps and bloops of electronic music with the refined dignity of classical music.
BT has posted a preview of the track "Dreaming" off the album, which is available for streaming on Soundcloud. Featuring a barrage of distortion saturated basses and percussion, juxtaposed alongside a robust string section, the preview serves as a worthy appetizer for the upcoming record and shows how skillfully BT has melded the separate worlds of EDM and classical.
