Hidden Orchestra's dexterous, lucid, sensually stunning live show is a key component of the project's aesthetic.
Immersive electronics delivered with an organic sweep, the producer - real name Joe Acheson - he built a tight crew of musicians to deliver his vision.
A collective that expands and contracts as suited, Hidden Orchestra's core quartet - comprised of Joe Acheson on bass and live electronics, Poppy Ackroyd on piano and violin, and the two drummers, Tim Lane and Jamie Graham - arranged a very special show last year.
Performing at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, the four-piece were augmented by stunning immersive visuals from visual artist Tom Newell of Limbic Cinema.
The night was an incredible experience for musicians the crowd, and was thankfully captured for posterity by Hidden Orchestra's long-term label Tru Thoughts.
Out now, ‘Live At Attenborough Centre For The Creative Arts’ is complimented by a full video experience, with Clash able to share a preview clip.
'Serpentine' has rarely been so emotive, so flexible, with this group of musicians pulling the material apart, exploring every nuance of feeling.
Tune in now.
