Classically schooled ensemble reinterprets Radiohead - approved by Nils Frahm
In ’16, AB asked Brussels’ classically schooled ensemble Echo Collective to make Radiohead’s ‘Amnesiac’ (from ‘01) – the little brother of troublemaker ‘Kid A’ – sound like it was a classical masterpiece. By means of a concert residence in AB Salon, the audience could see and hear the evolution of ‘The shaping of …’ at close proximity. In the meantime, they have now triumphed at AB festivals like BRDCST (in the company of Hauschka) and the Feeërieën. But Nils Frahm also fell for them too, and invited them to perform soon in the prestigious Philharmonie de Paris.
To top it all off, Berlin label K7! (see, amongst others: the artist curated series LateNightTales with the likes of Nils Frahm, The Cinematic Orchestra, BadBadNotGood, Jon Hopkins,...) has wooed them into releasing all this finery on an album. The moving result can be heard in its entirety on this night.
