Brian "BT" Transeau, one of the originators of contemporary trance and a longtime film scorer, is wrapping up a new, two-disc album, These Hopeful Machines, due Feb. 2 via Nettwerk. The label describes the two-plus hour work as containing "sweeping orchestral arrangements, pulsating electronic beats, heartfelt vocal melodies and even simple acoustic guitar."
BT says he wants to create a work of art in an age when music flows like water.
"The faster things get, the less people are willing to take in a body of creative work," he says. "There are so few things now that will engage us. The intent of consuming music is usually to have an awareness or a feeling, to have a truly, empathic connection to others. My hope is to create something that makes people feel that they have consumed something that completes a void. I want to create something lasting."
