In May 2012, Brooklyn-based composer Rebecca Brandt mixed electro-acoustic, contemporary classical and electronic sounds to create her debut album Numbers & Shapes. It featured 14 tracks of original compositions, written and orchestrated for 30+ instruments. Instrumentation ranged from solo piano to a string quartet, to a mixture of woodwinds, guitars and electronic synths, to a 32-piece orchestra. It reached top 25 for “Best New Age Album” at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Numbers & Shapes: Revisited (GV001) was the brainchild of Green Villain, a Jersey City based art gallery. The concept behind the project was to curate a dance-floor driven remix album where the fixation of genre was irrelevant. There were no guidelines, no expectations, and no time constraints for completion. After a year in the making, 14 remixes have come together and created a truly unique listening experience.
