This show was 4th in the global ambient chart.
An improvised live remix mixtape from Joe Acheson of Hidden Orchestra recorded at The Old Market in Brighton. Promoting his new album 'Live at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts' out 3rd May.
"This was a one-off version of a solo show for a specific event, and almost the opposite of the full band show. It was in an interactive laser forest which was part of an extensive immersive VR installation at the venue. So I played back all the birdsong recordings I used to make Dawn Chorus, and over the top I improvised with a laptop and some effects pedals, creating live dub arrangements of Hidden Orchestra tracks using the recordings I made for the original album versions – combining different parts, restructuring and reorchestrating the pieces on the fly. I wanted to let the birdsong speak (Dawn Chorus was my birds' record), so I kept the other layers really ambient, using big echoes and reverbs and filters to shape the sounds."
