The orchestra are really excited to be starting a project this Autumn with turntablist Philip Jeck. He’s a legend in his field and truly original.He’s played wth many musicians/composers such as, Jah Wobble, Steve Lacy, Gavin Bryars, Jaki Liebezeit, David Sylvian, Sidsel Endresen and Bernhard Lang. The mix of his evocative other worldly music and the acoustic instruments of the orchestra we think will be an awesome mix. He’s going to write something especially for us and the mixture of electronics and acoustic instruments will be a first for us. We’ll be playing a couple of concerts this Autumn and some more next year, details to follow. Watch this space for updates.
Here’s a photo from when David’s Leahy was directing the orchestra in his Musicians in space project in Spring 2017. Interesting mike set up!
It’s that time of the month again, time to hear some beautiful, spontaneous music from the orchestra.
This month we’re upstairs at The Ship and Mitre pub in Liverpool.
