Notes and Editorial Reviews

Cortical Songs is a work in four movements for string ensemble and solo violin written by John Matthias and Nick Ryan in which the orchestra is partially controlled by a tiny computer brain. Cortical Songs features the String Ensemble of Trinity College of Music, conducted by Nic Pendlebury with the solo violin played by John Matthias and live interactive programming by Nick Ryan.

The Cortical Songs album includes remixes of the four movements by Thom Yorke, Simon Tong (Gorillaz / The Good The Bad & The Queen), Simon Jones & Nick McCabe (The Verve), John Maclean (The Beta Band / The Aliens), and Gabriel Prokofiev, with further remixers to be added in the coming weeks. This is set to be one of the most unique and
Read more fascinating releases of the year.
