National Center for the Arts of Grenoble, France, commissioned Xeno & Oaklander to score an original piece of sound design entitled ‘Movements’. It aired during the museum’s online radio exhibition entitled ‘Take You There Radio’, in June 2015. Here it is available as a digital download through Ghostly. Recorded live at the Xeno & Oaklander analog synth studio in Brooklyn, the 35 minute piece was inspired by travel in space and time. Field recordings gleaned during their travels are mixed in. The work is largely situated around the use of the Serge Modular and the new Sequential Prophet 6. Synth guitar washes abound with spacious string hooks, ethereal vocals, shamanistic drums and arpeggios with echoes of early Philip Glass.
Xeno and Oaklander are a minimal electronics girl/boy duo, and they are based in Brooklyn, NY. They began writing music and soundtracks in 2004. Liz Wendelbo is French / Norwegian and Sean McBride...check out Xeno & Oaklander's page and other releases
