“Sylphid Vitalizers” Influenced by the the banjo orchestras of the 1920's where 20 to 30 banjo players would be playing simultaneously, S.V. recreates the density of these orchestras leaving behind the diatonic harmonies and trading them for thickly overdubbed passages of accelerated tremoloing, percussive strumming and bowing. Utilizing studio layering, nothing is sped up or looped all of the material is played in real time to the incessant thrash of a click track. Flashes of improvisation and a pummeling vintage drum machine give a startling counterpoint to this study in density. Tiny Mix Tapes noted “the tension here resembles that of string ensembles stretched to the absolute snapping point”.
