bt preps new album

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."

hope it's better than that last turd he shat out, some hippy dippy crap that was utterly unlike any of the stellar work he'd previously done. let's hope so!
