Melanfonie, out in January, was composed on a laptop "with really horrible cheap-sounding orchestra sample libraries programmed together with my mouse," she says. And after raising €25,000 (£22,250) from Kickstarter, Jolly could afford to hire a 50-piece orchestra and spend eight hours recording them in a former Communist Party studio in Prague.
To give the music more of a dance feel, Jolly physically rearranged the orchestra. Usually the basses and violins sit on opposite sides of the pit to separate the high and low notes. But Jolly put all the basses in the middle, with a group of violins on both sides, to replicate the widespread high notes and central bassline of a Timbaland-produced track. "I tried to compose everything to be exactly how it would sound in the room so it can be performed live," she says.
