The Cinematic Orchestra Australian tour + watch videos (incl. All That You Give feat Fontella Bass!)

The Cinematic Orchestra

Created by composer and multi-instrumentalist Jason Swinscoe in 1999, British-based The Cinematic Orchestra lives up to their name with an atmospheric and beguiling combination of ingenious sampling, live instruments and jazzy electronic sound with a great swing and beat.

The Cinematic Orchestra's debut album 'Motion', a soundtrack to an imaginary thriller, took everyone by surprise and was voted by listeners of Giles Peterson's Radio One show as the album of the year.

Watch video: All That You Give (feat. Fontella Bass):

That album, along with subsequent albums - 'Every Day', 'Man With A Movie Camera' and 'Ma Fleur' - have seen TCO (whose members expand and contract with each new album, sometimes including a string section, often collaborating with vocalists like Fontella Bass and newcomer Patrick Watson, and top free jazz saxophonist Tom Chant and pianist Nick Ramm) enjoy massive cult success resulting in an invitation to play at the Director's Guild Award ceremony for the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to the legendary director Stanley Kubrick.

Their song "To Build a Home from Ma Fleur" will be well known to people in Australia after being prominently used in the award winning Cadbury Schweppervescence 'Burst' commercial.

Watch Schweppervescence Commercial:

More than just a studio act however, TCO manage to translate their spine tingling blend of jazz, soul, and funk, orchestral and sampled beats into the live arena. In doing so they have impressed audiences over and over again headlining festivals and playing at venues including the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

In January it will finally be Australia's turn to witness TCO's extraordinary live show when they perform what promises to be an epic performance in an epic venue - Melbourne's Palais Theatre ... this is guaranteed to have your neck hairs standing to attention!
