Take over 200 musicians from 30 countries and imagine they never met but are sampled, combined and reimagined to create new music of extraordinary unique fusions crossing multiple styles and cultures. Bringing people together from around the world digitally, duo Addictive TV present their global project Orchestra of Samples. Six years in the making, the pair filmed improvised recordings while touring, ingeniously sampling and splicing them together to create new music. The result is a digital supergroup who never met, but play together on screen with a range of unusual localised instruments from sessions recorded in Brazil, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Senegal, Colombia, India, across Europe and even Bhutan in the Himalayas. The 2017 album was released last year, receiving airplay on the likes of BBC6 Music, BBC Radio3, Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM and many others.
