The “imagined” Hidden Orchestra returns to EFG London Jazz Festival with a new live show, on the occasion of their new album to be released in September.
Created by composer/producer Joe Acheson, the “imaginary orchestra” features a wide variety of guest musicians from different musical backgrounds. Their sound is composed of dark orchestral textures, with field recordings, bass, and layers of drums and percussion.
The London premiere of the new live show will feature original orchestra member Poppy Ackroyd on piano, as well as impressive live visuals by Limbic Cinema.
