San Francisco Bay Area drummer, Scott Amendola’s composition “Fade to Orange”, written for his wife, originally premiered to critical acclaim at Oakland’s Paramount Theater in 2011. After several years of planning, rewriting and reorchestrating, Amendola assembled a studio dream team of original collaborators – Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, powerhouse bassist Trevor Dunn – and the great Magik*Magik Orchestra. This ambitious composition exhibits surging arrays of sonic expression with Cline riding the epic crescendos of the orchestra yet also retains the emotional intensity of the romantic gesture Amendola intended for his wife. The album also features four remixes where the protean nature of music truly comes into focus as the piece is reimagined by four very distinct personalities.
