Adventures In Transcription
The Fantasy Orchestra are an open-to-all community orchestra based in Bristol and Paris and are celebrating the release of their first LP which brings together an eclectic mix of music by diverse artists such as Sun Ra and Caetano Veloso, folk musician Richard Dawson, Brooklyn-based post punk duo Buke and Gase and electonic composer Distasterpeace, as well as local composers.
They score their arrangements so every instrument can have a part in every piece – most are quite minimalist in their original versions but all so amazingly rich harmonically that it feels quite natural to expand the orchestration to the maximum.
Kevin Figes wonderful ’70s library music band Underscore kick off the evening.
