Daedelus Shares Tracks From Incubate Residency
The Netherlands' Incubate Festival gathered an impressive lineup of forward-thinking artists and producers for its seven-day event last fall, which included three nights of parties curated by XLR8R. As part of the festivities, Los Angeles sample-maestro Daedelus was featured as an "artist in residence," working with and sampling students at Fontys Rock Academy and the Conservatory in Tilburg in order to create a new piece of original music every day for four days. Now, the resulting compositions have been made available to download for free. In order to grasp the full scope of the project, the good folks at Incubate provided a brief video which documents Daedelus' process and finds him waxing philosophical about his production approach and the challenges a task of this nature holds. You'll find that video, along with the four festival-commissioned productions, below.
