Scripted Orkestra available now

In 2016, Metropole Orkest and Henrik Schwarz opened Amsterdam Dance Event. This collaboration was extended in 2017 and 2018 with several concerts. Next to that, they got together in the studio to work on the album named ‘Scripted Orkestra’. This album is now available over here.

Henrik Schwarz composes with love for, and knowledge of orchestral music. Together with chief conductor Jules Buckley he wrote an hour of new music for ‘Scripted Orkestra’.  The result is an album full of pieces where the border between dance and orchestral music completely disappears.

Counter Culture is the second track of the album and carries a special message. Henrik Schwarz: “Many bad, weird, absurd, unforeseen things are happening in the world around us. However I didn’t want to complain because I believe negative talking and thinking is the wrong way. So I decided to write an ambitious ‘positive protest song’.” Watch the video for this song now on YouTube.
