Bell Orchestre announce vinyl release of remix EP Who Designs Nature's How

15.3  2023


Bell Orchestre share two versions of their piece Water / Light / Shifts — the original studio version taken from the forthcoming reissue of As Seen Through Windows, and a spellbinding remix courtesy of fellow Canadian electronic producer Tim Hecker.

"Listening to this, 14 years later and having totally forgotten making this one afternoon, was a reminder that things do change. I can hear the old markers of granular synthesis, Nord Modular synth and fake mellotron samples. These are tools left on a past workbench. It has the rough style of probably 5 layers of improvisation stacked against each other, in a way that feels both like home and yet also some distant foreign self." — Tim Hecker.

Originally only released on CD and sold on tour, the Montreal outfit’s remix EP entitled Who Designs Nature’s How has been pressed on vinyl for the first time ever, due May 26. In addition to Hecker’s reinterpretation, it also features contributions from the late Japanese prodigious composer Susuma Yokota, dub legend Mad Professor, Canadian DJ and producer Kid Koala, as well as long-time friend Colin Stetson amongst others.
