I recently came across the music of Max Richter – I think via LastFM which has this to day about him:
“Though he has a strong background in the canons of classical music, his influences were more modern composers and in particular, Iannis Xenakis whose musical compositions applied mathematical and physical laws and Philip Glass whose sound was a major influence on Richter. His influences also include rock bands The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Clash, as well as electronic music groups Kraftwerk and Autechre.”
I posted a video up on Facebook which I think is where my friend Chris aka Catweasle came across it. Chris is a very talented guy working in the visual medium and he’s produced this fairly simple but beautifully effective video to the music of Richter. Enjoy.
