Video: Hans Zimmer & Radiohead on use of random music composition technique “tidal orchestra” for Blue Planet II

Video – How Hans Zimmer and Radiohead transformed “Bloom” for Blue Planet II.

Radiohead’s “Bloom,” remixed for the ocean. If you listen closely enough to Radiohead and Hans Zimmer’s rework of “Bloom” for Blue Planet II, you can hear a really fascinating orchestral trick at work. They call it the “tidal orchestra” — it’s a musical effect created by instructing each player to play their notes only if the person next to them isn’t playing. The result is a randomly swelling and fading musical bed for the entire series that captures the feeling of ocean waves. It’s a captivating way to score a soundtrack for the ocean — but it also fits in with a long history of capturing randomness in music composition.

Here is the video of Thom Yorke – BLOOM, Pathway to Paris Live @ Le Trianon (HD) on Piano, Elektron Analog Rytm, and Looper.
