Richard James came up with the idea of controlling a 48 piece string section and a 24 strong choir by remote control, using midi controllers, lots of headphones and some remote visual cues, after being commissioned to write some pieces for the European culture congress in Poland. There was only one opportunity for a rehearsal to see if the idea worked, it was in the morning, the day of the concert! This is the result. Programming by weirdcore & andrew benson.

    Makes me grit my teeth. Not my style! Interesting execution, however. 

  2. While the objective may have been achieved I think the music was not a good choice.   It is not something one would associate with a Choir and Orchestra.   It would have been better if something more traditional had been played.
