The Bush is an innovative project of narrative music conceived, written, composed, arranged and produced by composer Diego Buongiorno. It's scheduled for a release in December 2012. And it's of course being mixed here in Iceland by Addi 800, in his studio, Room 313.
In the words of the composer himself: 'The Bush embodies a new approach to the creative process crossing Music, Art and Technology in a contemporary product that you can not define only as a musical album. As a project, The Bush hosts more than 50 people from all over the world, including international musicians, artists and designers; it really is a complex and complete opera, an epic journey through Art and Music'.
Not only that, but it's going to sound great. It will feature (amongst others) The Irrepressibles, Clare & the Reasons, Jo Hamilton and Sabina Sciubba from Brazilian Girls.
Some of the many artists involved are Icelandic, The Bush will feature strings from our friends Amiina, drummer Einar Scheving, the SJS Brass section, Arnar plays bass on some tracks, and Don Pedro even plays a tormented guitar on one of the songs.
