Album Notes
Marc Spooner (keyboardist for American symphonic progressive rock band Metaphor) has recorded an all-synthesizer (and some Mellotron) version of Stravinsky’s masterpiece in time for the 100th anniversary of the famous riotous premiere of the ballet. “I’ve always been a huge fan of the Wendy Carlos and Tomita and Synergy albums and no one had ever done an electronic version of the entire score of The Rite, so I figured I’d do it myself! It was created with a collection of vintage Moog, ARP, and Roland synths with a dash of a modern Kurzweil plus a generous helping of Mellotron.”
