Prayer has shared “Without You”, the first track to from his new project Lost. Comprised of four works, Lost is attempts to unite classical and electronic music. “Without You” toys with conventions pairing classical instrumentation with a driving trance-like undercurrent. Prayer is set on pushing electronic music in a bold new direction and we’re happy to go with him.
The producer had this to say: “Lost was a project created out of my desire to present classical / electronic music that is unpolished around the edges. Each track touches on emotional extremes, all of them based on an idea that is then distorted / concealed in a way that brings a rough touch to all the pieces. It is this concealment in music that fascinates me - that you can compose an idea and then contrast the elegance of it with something less smooth.
My approach is influenced by 20th century classical / electroacoustic works, where composers would often contrast harsh sounds with more 'pleasant' sounding tones.
Lost is released digitally on 20 January.
