Musica Improvisus is an upcoming album by an Australian musician, producer and sound engineer India Hooi, to be released in 2018. The album mixes composition, improvisation and digital arrangement and features several highly skilled musicians playing various acoustic instruments. The music crosses several genres, mixing elements of classical, jazz, world and experimental music.
You can listen the project “A Journey Through Musica Improvisus” by clicking in the logo:
“An experimental composition for my Masters in Tonmeister (sound recording). Each musician was invited to an individual recording session, during which they listened to prerecorded snippets of composition, and then improvised a series of melodies, harmonies, textures, rhythms and any musical ideas that came to mind. From the enormous amount of recorded material, the most interesting snippets were edited and patched together – the process like assembling an acoustic jigsaw puzzle without knowing the final picture. The result is an inspiring collaboration of multiple musical minds.”
