Being Dufay
Album: 01 July 2009

Ambrose Field's Being Dufay, released worldwide this month on ECM/Universal and mixed in analog at Oslo's Rainbow Studio, features Kyma throughout. Field took fragments of music by the 15th century composer, sung by tenor John Potter, and placed them in new digitally modified settings. Kyma was used to create a flexible, digital model of Potter's voice. Using Tau synthesis, Field was able to morph Potter into female backing singers and a haze of new medieval choirs. Being Dufay received 5 star ratings for both music and production in the June edition of BBC Music Magazine, with dubbing it "one of the most hauntingly beautiful records of the year" and concluding: "...this is music created by the heart as much as the mind."
