about

Following the release of 2018’s acclaimed pair of albums Staccato Signals and Drone Signals, Ben Chatwin returns in March 2019 with Altered Signals.

As the title suggests, Ben has enlisted the talents and imaginations of a host of electronic producers to reconfigure the original ten compositions featured on Staccato Signals, injecting new life into a project already seething with texture, dynamism and emotion.

Highlights include Planet Mu stalwart Ital Tek’s remix of ‘Silver Pit’, which seizes the slow-burning cataclysmic energy of the original and reforms it with the bold, cinematic crescendos that characterised his 2018 album Bodied. Steve Hauschildt, who also released a new album last year, Dissolvi, repurposes the alien yet organic synth sounds from ‘Helix’ into a multi-dimensional blissful ambient techno workout.

Strictly speaking, this is the second ‘remix’ album of the Signals project - with Drone Signals, Ben already took the material in one direction by feeding string parts into an array of modular and analogue synthesisers. With this new album, he once again relinquishes control - a central conceptual underpinning of the project - by working with some of his favourite producers working in the electronic world.

Though the music ranges from ambient to acid techno, this is nevertheless a dynamic and cohesive work that’s sure to excite fans of both of Staccato Signals and Drone Signals.
