Danse Macabre in Krasnoyarsk (arrangement 3 for Russian Traditional Orchestra + SC3)

from Danse Macabre Superdeluxe by Secret Chiefs 3


Long awaited first fruits of our collaboration with the Traditional Russian Orchestra of Krasnoyarsk, Siberia.

2014's Third Arrangement (also presented here) was done as part of a program of SC3 repertoire music adapted for this amazing and adventurous 61-piece Soviet-style orchestra, accompanied by SC3 as the rhythm section. The arrangement, specifically for this ensemble, bursts the whole original Mausolée Méchanique (band-clustered-around-a-Theatrical-Organ thing) wide open, and fully indulges all the opportunities of traditional Russian instrumentation (domra, balalaika, bayan, gusli etc). To accommodate this ambitious hybridization, the entire approach to the piece had to be re-imagined from the ground up, and a host of new counter lines and voicing approaches came up as a result. The recording here was made at the concert in Kansk, Siberia. More info and musical examples in the liner notes.
