"Expedition" is the echolot debut of multi-talented composer Christian R. Meyer and features an original 14-minute score he wrote for a short film project in 2013/14. His orchestral piece of epic grandeur evokes images taking the listener on an emotional journey. Even though it is not evident the score was produced just with digital means that are being used in contemporary Hollywood productions as well. It is simply stunning what sample-based software can do these days.
On the B side of the release Lars Kemnitz alias Kämmer delivers a remix that draws you deep into the darkness of woods. Being less epic the remix recycles certain parts of the original score in distorted soundscapes combining them with live recordings over a massive bassline and a broken beat structure. Kämmer makes it a gritty and slightly bulky piece of electronic music.
