This November, Jamie Jones and Kate Simko come together for an exquisite collaboration at London’s world-class arts venue the Barbican for a full concert of original music fusing live orchestra and electronics, ‘Opus 1’. This event will witness the debut and launch of Opus 1, a project that Jamie and Kate plan to perform at festivals and other cities in 2019.
The duo will showcase brand new material alongside recomposed originals, alongside a captivating 25-piece expansion of Simko’s enthralling, London Electronic Orchestra. LEO will be led by violinist Kamila Bydlowska, harpist Valeria Kurbatova, and cellist Davina Shum.
The concert will feature some of Jamie Jones’ well-known tracks recomposed for orchestra, including ‘Hungry for the Power,’ ‘Tonight In Tokyo, and Hot Natured’s ‘Benediction,’ alongside the duo’s collaborations with London Electronic Orchestra, ‘One Time Game ft. Jem Cooke’ and ‘Dark Delirium.’
Housed in the cultural hub the Barbican, and led by Robert Ames, the principle conductor of London Contemporary Orchestra, Tuesday 27th November is shaping up to be an elegant synthesis of creative forces, cinematic soundscapes and emotive disco strings and another page written in the memoir of electronic music.
