The latest project from Mr. Bill known as ‘The Collaborative Endeavors – A Glitch Opera’ is a 19 track masterpiece composed of joint efforts from Mr. Bill and select artists of his choosing. Since April 1st, 2013 one track has been released per week to create this massive collaboration. The final track, a match up between Mr. Bill and Haywyre, is an instrumental glitch-hop track worthy of several listens.
Mr. Bill states on his artist page that his music is based on evocation. He enjoys creating music that ‘excites the ear and the brain’. In order to do this, he utilizes a vast range of “strange” production methods and musical theories in order to create these unique sounds. His sound is characterized by unlatched, glitchy breakbeats, heavy, swung-out bass lines and flawless edits with “a large dash of palatable melodic content.” We can get down to that for sure.
On the other end of this collaboration, we have Martin Vogt, aka, Haywyre. Martin has been studying piano since the age of six and became enthralled with the idea of production ever since he was introduced to jazz and hip-hop while living in Australia. After moving back to the US (Minneapolis), Haywyre was born. Using the piano as his main compositional tool, Martin utilizes memorable jazz and classical influences to craft melodically unique electronic jams.
The progression of this song is a force to be reckoned with. One listen will immediately get you hooked on this track. The glitch hop technique is executed brilliantly with the use of non-electronic instruments such as the guitar and bass. DO NOT pass this one up. You will indeed regret it.
