An amazing process of analysis, discovery, de- and re-construction and re-creation led to Brahms v. Radiohead — a synthesis of Brahms' First Symphony (1882) and Radiohead's OK Computer (1997). All four movements of the Brahms and eight songs from the Radiohead album are featured. The envelope of what is possible and permissible is constantly pushed, with Radiohead songs being superimposed above Brahms' music, Radiohead's melodies being altered to coexist with Brahms' harmonies, the motives of one interjected into the other, and departures from the score left and right to accommodate journeys into a new compelling and captivating world that is at once both musics. Three vocalists sing the melodies of Radiohead, both in solo and harmony.
