SKARN (EDITS) is the first single to be released from ORE’s album Belatedly (Box Records, Nov 2017).
It features two edits, one by ORE’s baritone horn player Beck Baker and the other by ORE founder and tuba player Sam Underwood.
The first piece, Baker Edit, builds directly on the original version of SKARN. When performed live, SKARN features a part Beck Baker wrote and performs on baritone horn; an instrument normally only found in brass bands. The added harmony is sympathetic but played in a register that lifts thepiece to new heights.
Underwood’s Deep Bass Voyager Edit is a total departure for ORE. A fully electronic piece, featuring manipulated feedback, organic textures and seismic bass.
ORE is the doom tuba sound of Sam Underwood.
