The acclaimed London based producer, composer and cellist Peter Gregson releases his new album ‘Patina’ today. ‘Patina’ is the world’s first album specifically created to be listened to in Dolby Atmos. In short, this record would not exist if this revolutionary new audio technology had not been invented and was mixed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
“I didn’t want to write an album where each track finishes with a full stop. I needed there to be space in the music for the listener to bring the music into their world, to make their own decisions and have their own response… Nothing was recorded in big lush rooms, everything is very intimate and I didn’t want it to sound like a Classical Record. I wanted to treat my cello as a voice – singing these modern ‘songs without words’.”
The album is released with accompanying video for ‘Cluster’, a beautifully atmospheric composition, symbolic of Gregson’s desire to “play with the idea of a minimal melody to lead the ear but with an orchestration, arrangement, and production around it that is constantly evolving and growing long after the pressure releases.”
Directed by Arran Shearing in British Columbia one late winter commented on the video: “I tired to create a soft meditation on nature, urbanization, and the aesthetic found in both. Peter’s music seems to take all these elements from the creative process that other people ignore or disregard and brings them to the forefront in really exciting ways.”
