When not writing music for chamber ensembles, theater, dance, or film, Daniel Corral likes to relax a bit by making electronic pieces. Die Laughing is a collection of a few of these. A bit of a departure from his usual work, these are beat-driven, sample-laden tunes.
There are 2 remixes of other peoples’ music: one of Iggy Pop’s “Dirt,” and one of Roy Orbison’s “Cry Softly, Lonely One.” Also, one track features a sample of Sergei Esenin reading his poem “Confessions of a Hooligan” in Russian.
