Olivia Louvel – founder of Cat Werk Imprint and frequent collaborator with Paul ‘PK’ Kendall – has remixed ‘Paris’ from Fiona Brice’s Postcards From album. Brice is a violinist and composer who has worked with many pop acts, as well as having a core role in Placebo.
Louvel’s approach is to take Brice’s beautiful violin and piano passages and leave them relatively untouched, pure even, but add beds of sound and tiny, popping beats and other sonic interventions to create a delicate, subtly soundworld. The mix recalls the fragility of Delia Gonzalez’s recent album while also having a textural depth that’s a lot like listening in 3D.
The mix is taken from Postcards Reframed, which is available on iTunes.
