Of all the music to attempt to perform with an orchestra, the insane complexity and seemingly inhuman arrangements of Aphex Twin would be much lower on the list. But I suppose someone like Steve Reich would be the perfect candidate to take on the challenge. In most cases, the songs on this acoustic version of Aphex Twin are just merely interesting renditions. “Avril 14th” sounds exactly the same and “4” sounds about as close at it possibly could. Other songs, however, sound better then original. I would rather listen to Alarm Will Sound’s version of “Logon Rock Witch” which features prettier sounds and flowing strings. It’s fun to listen this album just to hear the intricacies included by a 20 piece orchestra, translated from some incredible experimental electronica.

3.7/5
