'Transition', the collaborative release of Immix
Ensemble and Vessel focuses on the theme of
technology. Musical instruments are a somewhat
technological anomaly in that they are rarely updated
after their conception, often only receiving minor
tweaks over the course of hundreds of years. As such,
each instrument provides us with a snapshot of the
cutting edge technologies of a particular time and place
– in this sense, the instrumentation used by Immix
provides us with snapshots of technologies that can be
traced back as far as 1500BC.
Taking these snapshots as a starting point, each
movement in 'Transition' features one or two
instruments, and, thematically, explores a significant
invention or discovery that took place at around the
same time as the invention and development of these
instruments. Collaborating with Vessel updates this
technological chronology by including the tools of the
digital age.
Immix is lead by Australian-born composer and sax
player Daniel Thorne. The now Liverpool-based artist
has a genuine passion for exploring and creating
music in a diverse range of forms; composed and
improvised, acoustic and electronic, and the various
shades in-between. Founded in 2014, the idea behind
Immix has been to galvanise the innovative musical
voices from across the country.
With the addition of Vessel, the moniker of Bristolian
electronic composer Sebastian Gainsborough,
Immix found a valuable first partner in exploring
forward-thinking composition that slips between the
cracks of traditional and contemporary styles. A
stalwart of the UK experimental electronica
community, Vessel's solo work has received critical
acclaim for it’s post-industrial, visceral tone, using a
sonic palette derived from the creation of home-made
instruments, aiding in the creation of his signature
nonreplicable sound.
As the first in this series, March 18, 2016 will see the
release of 'Transition' on 12" vinyl and download,
followed by a string of live performances by the
collaborators. Future episodes will bring further
collaborations by Daniel Thorne’s ensemble with other
forward-thinking artists and ensure Immix continues to
evolve and expand.
