Transport Aerian The Making of The Abstract Symphony
Theriantrhope is the new album by Transport Aerian releasing in September 2017. The abstract Symphony is a set of songs and instrumental pieces woven into the tapestry of the album and was composed by blind improvisation by a team of seasoned and creative musicians. None of the musicians involved in this project knew what the other would play, as they were only given the similar theme descriptions and photographs to emphasize the visual representation of the sounds.
This experimental approach is manifest modernity of the age of the information field, which contains similar artistic concepts and thus allows any music to be created out of an idea, without other forms of direct physical or intellectual interaction. This musical experiment was an essential part to the conception of the new album.
