Detroit techno pioneers Octave One have announced a special performance with members of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra. The Burden Brothers will join the orchestra on stage to perform a string of original Octave One compositions.
Octave One: ‘When the opportunity of doing a special performance with members of the Tonhalle Orchestra was presented to us, we immediately thought of our time working with arranger Stephen Hussey on the ‘Black Water’ live strings mix back in 2001. Things got even better when Tonhalle were up for bringing him in on this project. We’re really excited about this collaboration and can’t wait to bring it to life’.
Project leader Pierre Bachmann: ‘The TonhalleLate is an event series which aims to take its guests on a musical and visual journey in three acts: I. Classical concert with Philharmonic Orchestra. II. Collaboration of electronic and classical soloists. III. Live act and DJ set. Each event is carefully crafted around a theme identified in the classical programme for the selected artists and choreographed accordingly. Invited electronic live acts are chosen for their state of the art musical approach, their fit with the classical pieces, as well as their representativeness of the Zeitgeist”.
The event will take place on the 11th December 2015 at the Tonhalle in Zurich.
