MO and Henrik Schwarz release new album
Metropole Orkest, conducted by Jules Buckley and Henrik Schwarz collaborated again to release a new, full-length LP titled ‘Scripted Orkestra’ on 7K!.
Originally performed live as the opening concert of ADE 2016 and broadcast by Boiler Room, this new studio recording delves further into Schwarz’s increasingly formidable orchestral talent, showcasing the incomparable thrill of seamlessly blending acoustic performance with computer generated music.
They announce the album, which will be released on 25 May, with the upbeat single ‘You’re A Fireball’. “This track is an anthem to all the people around us who light up our lives by being who they are and how they are…” says Schwarz.
‘Scripted Orkestra’ stands out because computer technology and processes have been translated and converted into a composition for live instruments. Technology came before the performance. “Some say orchestra music is dying, that orchestras are dying. I believe they are about to be reborn,” says Schwarz. “Computers and technology are taking over our lives; people have been hiding behind their screens, but there’s a yearning for more human interaction. With orchestras, the human element is undeniable. I think there are some very interesting developments happening in modern composition. It’s at the start of something new.”
