CORY STRAND "THE SHINING: A REINTERPRETATION" CDr (AOW 28)
I decided to offer my take on this masterful score, and while I certainly do not believe my work comes close to being the equal of Wendy Carlos's, I am very happy with how this record came out. In the first section I've played up the suffocating, thick darkness present in the piece and taken it further out, creating a lengthy journey through Carlos's rich synthesizer composition and sound assembly. The second section offers up my more "rock" take on the theme, pushing it close to a caustic riff on suicidal doom noise catharsis before it collapses into a throbbing, bass-drenched wall.
Released through Altar Of Waste and packaged in a DVD case with minimal artwork assembled by me, in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies. $10 ppd. in the United States, $18 rest of world.
