with Philharmonia Australia
Lush, evocative, deeply moving – The Cinematic Orchestra is here to play the movie soundtrack to your life.
Fuelled by the virtuosity of free jazz, the sultry atmospherics of UK soul and rhythmic hip-hop inflected beats, The Cinematic Orchestra has for the better part of 15 years been turning out impeccably constructed, grandiose jazzelectronica hybrids – music that scales great emotional heights even as it revels in the intricacies of sonic interplay.
Experienced live, The Cinematic Orchestra are nothing short of immense. Their marathon sets cover the span and breadth of recorded music – a reverential swirl of soul, jazz, classical, hip-hop, sampling and funk that sounds like everything you know and nothing you’ve ever heard. Joined on the majestic Hamer Hall stage by the might of Philharmonia Australia, The Cinematic Orchestra stand ready to unveil a transcendental evening of music, set to transport you to a sublime, filmic world.
