The Novi Orchestra presents Air!
It was a lot of fun and hard work putting this piece together and we’re thrilled to be able to share the final result with you.
“This song began life as a choral piece, written in October/November last year. I then wrote an arrangement for the big band, which I then adapted further by adding voices when we began this project. The final piece of the jigsaw came in the form of the drum track laid down by our drummer Ilia Rayskin. I was struggling to imagine what the drums could possibly play over a tune like this, so I gave Ilia free rein over the part. The end result – I’m sure you’ll agree – takes the piece to a whole other dimension whilst retaining the atmosphere of a chorale. It’s been an incredibly personal journey putting this piece together, from the original composition to the final arrangement you hear now, and I hope you all enjoy the final product!” – Alisdair
Special thanks to Anna Serierse, Isla van Hout and Laura Dooge for laying down some truly celestial vocals, Ido Zilberman for mixing and mastering to perfection and Ryan J. Smith for producing the music video.
