erasure World Beyond (MC, £7.50)label: mute
Erasure (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) have produced a collaboration with Echo Collective, the Brussels-based collective of post classical musicians best known for their ongoing collaborative work with A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Dustin O’Halloran and Stars Of The Lid. The collaboration sees the entirety of Erasure’s album ‘World Be Gone’ given a post classical rework. ‘World Beyond’ was recorded over ten days by Andy Bell and seven performers from the Echo Collective: Margaret Hermant (violin, harp), Neil Leiter (viola), Thomas Engelen (cello), Jaroslaw Mroz (double bass), Gary De Cart (piano) and Antoine Dandoy (vibraphone, glockenspiel). The collaboration is a natural progression from 1987’s ‘The Two Ring Circus’, a companion EP for the band’s second album, ‘The Circus’, which included several orchestral interpretations.
