A quartet making percussive, emotive, epic grooves, cinematic soundscapes and wonderful string arrangements all layered to perfection.
Formerly known as Joe Acheson Quartet, Hidden Orchestra combine two live drummers and deep basslines with strong jazz and classical influences, to make cinematic, emotive, percussive, next generation music using traditional instrumentation and organic samples. The band may occupy a musical stratum all on their own, but you can detect influences as diverse as Aphex Twin, Debussy, Xploding Plastix, Radiohead, Squarepusher, Madlib and Gene Krupa.
The band have shared stages with The Bays, Bonobo, Jaga Jazzist, Aim, Red Snapper, and Gilles Peterson. Their beautifully-crafted, explosive live show, where the core quartet is augmented with visuals, cello and brass has cemented their reputation as one the UK?s most unique up-coming outfits.http://www.myspace.com/hiddenorchestra http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/scotlandsmusic/2010/09/top-tip-hidden-orchestra-night-walks.shtml
