Ever thought a Solo performer, with a bit of automaton help, could sound this great? Pat Metheny’s latest project merges his performance with automated instruments to create a live solo live jazz group.
Can’t wait to hear the CD, wish the concert was coming a bit closer. Pat is touring ORCHESTRION through Europe in Feb/March, US/Canada starting in April but the closest he’ll get to NZ (so far) is L.A. or San Francisco. What about a Aussie/New Zealand leg Pat!?
This project represents a conceptual direction that merges an idea from the late 19th and early 20th centuries with the technologies of today to create a new, open-ended platform for musical composition, improvisation and performance.
