Item Description
Limited Edition for Record Store Day 2018

Oliver Coates' new arrangement of Pulitzer Prize-winning US composer John
Luther Adams' 2007 piece Canticles of the Sky appears for the first time in
recorded form as a limited vinyl edition from RVNG Intl. In March 2017,
Coates conducted 32 cellists in the UK premiere of the composition,
displaying its intimacies after deeply communing with the trajectories of
Adams' fictional suns and moons, the guiding characters and carriers of the
piece. This recorded interpretation, performed by Coates for multi-layered
solo cello, takes Canticles of the Sky to wondrous, dizzying new heights,
envisaging Adams' parallel dimension as an idealised construction. Marrying
extra-musical studio techniques and meticulous arrangements to Coates'
fascination with early electronic synthesis (especially the work of Laurie
Spiegel), the result offers an ultra-sensory take on classical string
instrumentation. "Making this recording was not only about creating the most
finely tuned interpretation of the piece in terms of frequencies and dynamics,
but was also a chance to do something I have always wanted to do; to make
a study in colour," Coates says. "Inspired by paintings by Hilma af Klint and
Agnes Martin, I had a chance to build an overall image using different playing
techniques and microphone combinations." Coates has released a handful of
solo records under his own name, including the acclaimed 2016 album
Upstepping, and in 2017 Remain Calm, a collaboration with Mica Levi. As an
artist and performer, he is frequently commissioned by world-renowned
orchestras, choreographers and visual artists to compose or curate integral
new works.
