In 2016, Johannes Brecht and Christian Prommer started a project together called „Voix Grave“, where they composed a classical piece of music together, and subsequently each made their own electronic music interpretation of it.
The project got wide recognition, with Johannes Brecht’s version even keeping the #1 position of Beatport’s Deep House Charts for weeks.
Now, in 2019, it’s time for the follow up. The title: “Page Blanche”. Progressive staccato dabs on the viola set a gloomy scenery, when a gentle bassoon starts to caress the composition with its warm tones.
More dark strings enter and crescendo into almost a march, then dissolving into a quiet violin whisper, only to return to full staccato force, played sul ponticello.
Johannes Brecht’s interpretation is a driving melodic Techno sabre, cutting through dark and hazy club rooms. The rapid arpeggios seem like flickering lights within the majestic string arrangement.
Christian Prommer’s take on “Page Blanche” is a more dramatic one, with additional pronounced synthesizer steps, creating a melancholic aura around the arrangement.
