Performing their latest audiovisual sampling extravaganza, duo Addictive TV bring their Orchestra of Samples project to the Milton Keynes International Festival. Take over 200 musicians from nearly 30 countries and imagine that they never met but are sampled, combined and reimagined to create new music of extraordinary unique fusions crossing multiple styles and cultures. Six years in the making, the pair filmed improvised recording sessions with musicians around the world, then ingeniously sampled and spliced them together to create the project.
The result is a digital supergroup of international artists who never met, but play together on-screen. Orchestra of Samples features top musicians in their field and documents a range of unusual localised instruments on recordings made in Brazil, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Senegal, Colombia, across Europe and even Bhutan in the Himalayas! Joining them for this special one-off performance on this musical journey without borders will be the wonderful percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie.
This performance is presented as part of IF: Milton Keynes International Festival 2018
