LV // Hammers And Roses // Ancient Mechanisms
September 16, 2015
Audio Premiere: LV + Tigran Hamasyan – “Hammers And Roses” from their forthcoming Ancient Mechanisms.
London based production duo LV, composed of Simon Williams and Will Horrocks, have made working with various collaborators in new environments a signature part of their sound. When they recorded a live session with virtuoso pianist Tigran Hamasyan back in 2012, they began a project that would span two and a half years and several hundred miles by the time it ended. Inspired by Hamasyan, the team focused on the workings of the instruments as they created unique musical settings for them. “We got into the sound that instruments make themselves, not just the production of the sound. We got into the actual sound of keys being hit,” said Williams. – Premiered via Revive
