This is an interesting piece of music made for contemporary dance, each track of which represents a different part of a dancer's body (Kaori Ito), with titles like 'Plexus', 'Lung', 'Hair', 'Blood', 'Chest', 'Hand', 'Ears', etc. There are 11 pieces in total and they're constructed from samples of Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons', hence the title.
Opener 'Plexus' throws us in the deep end with jarring loops of string melody battling with one another in seasick loops, 'Lung' mimics the dancer's breath with a weird stilted loop that expands and contracts in glitchy clicks, 'Hair' is all swells and flickers, 'Mouth' a minimal electric twitch, Japanese spoken word and mystical melodic loops which gradually layer in moody clouds...the idea of orchestral music that's been digitally sliced and diced and reprocessed into new forms is well and truly explored over the course of these 11 tracks.
I think what's impressing me most is that not only does this sound like new music in its own right but the source material, with which I'm already familiar, is not particularly recognisable when it's chopped up like this.
