****NEW DATE  - FRIDAY 16 SEPTEMBER (ALL ORIGINAL TICKETS ARE STILL VALID)****

 

Hidden Orchestra are a unique, experimental and original jazz percussion band. However they have cross genre appeal as they won the 'T-break' competition at T-in the park in 2008, which is usually dominated by guitar based bands.

Their debut album 'Night walks' is due out in September on the Brighton based Indie label 'Tru Thoughts'.

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.
