Trey Pollard (Natalie Prass, Foxygen) Shares Track from Matthew E. White-Produced Debut
Trey Pollard (Spacebomb Records' in-house arranger; Natalie Prass, Foxygen, Helado Negro, Matthew E. White, Bedouine, S-Town podcast) is excited to share "Fixed Ideas I," the next single from his contemporary classical debut album Antiphone. Produced by Matthew E. White, Antiphone will be released on November 16 via Spacebomb Records. "Fixed Ideas I" is now available to stream or embed.
The music featured on Antiphone had a unique introduction -- its official world debut was via a live stream of the recording session from Montrose Recording in Richmond, VA. Not even Trey had heard the music yet -- this was the first time a group of musicians has performed it, and the stream allowed the listener to hear the music as it was rehearsed, perfected and recorded. The live stream consisted of the recording of two separate pieces with a 16-piece orchestra comprised of string players and a pianist, with Pollard at the helm as conductor. Viewers took a rare, intimate front-row seat as Pollard conducted and instructed his players while they rehearsed, and ultimately recorded, his debut compositions. It's not often that outsiders get such a close look inside the creative process of recording chamber music, especially not for a composer's anticipated debut.
