David Baron 'Reworks'
Featuring Lomea and AJE (Ambient Jazz Ensemble) and the (Synton) Syrinx Brothers
Firstly David Baron runs some Synton Syrinx voltage through his 'Under Rain' piece. Syrinx provides the bass and ambient textures against acoustic piano and string section that was recorded in a concert hall. The Syrinx ambient textures were processed through a Roland Space Echo – a unique sounding tape echo unit. Makes everything dreamy !
Lomea flips Simi Stone cowrite 'The Steps' into a modern classical electronica chill masterpiece. AJE Colin Baldry (Ambient Jazz Ensemble) redesign 'Where We Are' giving it a wonderful cinematic indie guitar and electronica tranquility. Syrinx Brothers are David Baron and one of his celebrity producer friends who for contractual reasons we cannot name. The Synton Syrinx is an extremely rare synthesizer, only a few hundred were manufactured in the Netherlands between 1983 and 1984. With 'Where We Are' the hardness of the Syrinx provides the bass as well as textures. Disco synth music for a space station !
Lomea (pronounced ‘Low-maya’) is the experimental electronic project from renowned producer Rich Keyworth. His signature style is defined by a blend of manipulated organic instruments and real-world field recordings, with all manner of synths and other electronic sound sources.
AJE produce the finest cinematic Lounge Music, orchestral jazziness, accessible and uplifting beautiful, story telling through epic instrumentals, pieces that start simply and grow in intensity become euphoric suites.
Composer and producer David Baron has amassed a vast vintage and modular synth collection including the very celesta Thelonious Monk played on Brilliant Corners.
His commercial music CV is impressive. Working with fellow Woodtsock artists Four Tet and Simone Felice aswell as The Lumineers, Shawn Mendes, Meghan Trainor, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Jackson, Peter Murphy, Simone Felice, Melanie De Biasio, Bat For Lashes and most recently the hotly tipped Jade Bird (who is signed to Glass Note Records) are some of his clients.
