Orchestra of Samples by Addictive TV – an audiovisual global music show with guest Alphonse Daudet Touna.
This is a delayed event from the June 2023 Festival. Date tbc.
ORCHESTRA OF SAMPLES – an audiovisual music project from artists Addictive TV, with multi-instrumentalist Alphonse Daudet Touna.
Ethno-sampling mavericks Addictive TV bring their global music project Orchestra of Samples to Bristol. Described as “ingenious and compelling” by The Times, the acclaimed live performance is a unique musical journey without borders, taking in Senegal, Kazakhstan, Indonesia, Colombia, Brazil, India and many more, connecting cultures and bringing together instruments, from traditional and rare to the newly invented.
With their project, Addictive TV filmed recording sessions around the world, for over a decade, with hundreds of musicians improvising; then sampled them all, splicing instruments together to create new music of extraordinary fusions. Joining on stage will be Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist Alphonse Daudet Touna from Cameroon.
Immerse yourself in mesmerising rhythmic dialogues and discover instruments you never knew existed!
