Fantastic music on DJ Ritu's #AWIL with audio visual sound scientists - Addictive TV, who played new tracks, as well as tracks from there album ‘Orchestra of Samples’. Graham Daniels and Mark Vidler spoke to Sophie Darling and Norman Druker in the Resonance 104.4fm studio about piecing together their 200+ puzzle of human musical samples.
Together they travel the world gathering global snippets from various improvisations, visiting countries, schools, villages, individuals to collect, cut up and re-connect various improvisations and musical clippings. The result: the Fantastic ‘#Orchestra Of Samples’ released last year, and now they’re touring with an all-out tech filled show.
Normally accompanied by multiple live musicians, and a large immersive video depicting the musicians playing their improvisations as they appear in the songs, the audio - VISUAL elements become imperative in their live performances, as you’re treated to the 5th element of the band: the screen, that clarifies what samples and instruments you hear in each piece.
They have just embarked upon an exciting UK tour, Addictive TV are continuously creating, collecting and producing new and exciting mash ups. If you go on their website: http://www.orchestraofsamples.com/ you can download a collection of the samples they have collected FOR FREE as part of a ‘remix’ initiative.
Be sure to catch them on their coming dates in: Poly Arts Centre, Capitol Theatre, Harwich Festival, Marine Theatre, Int’l Festival, Prod’n’lab, Storyhouse, Junction 12, Constellations, Pheonix Arts Centre, Cresent Arts Centre.
