Chamber + popular music

Unthunk merges chamber and popular music. The chamber music influence derives particularly from the modal polyphony of the Renaissance. Pop music characteristics include modern lyrics and instruments. With chamber music, the score captures the initial impulse, much as a screenplay does for a film. The performers provide feel and character, bringing the score to life, transforming the piece in the process. The popular music elements originate intuitively, from off the cuff sketches or improvisation. If you are musician who would like to be involved in Unthunk recording, we invite you to get in touch.
