Heritage Orchestra @ De La Warr Pavilion, Marina, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, TN40 1DP
Saturday November 14th
A major event to launch a new partnership between the De La Warr Pavilion and the Heritage Orchestra – “a blast of fresh air across the orchestral landscape” – Heritage Orchestra is a 21st century orchestra comprising young, forward-thinking musicians and composers. Powerful and daring, their collaborative approach and modern production values have set them on a new path that bridges the worlds of mainstream, cult, experimental, and popular art and music. Recent collaborations include Massive Attack, The Bays, UNKLE and Dizzee Rascal where their amplified sound has allowed them to experiment in electronica, hip-hop, sci-fi noir and contemporary classical. In this one-off concert conducted by Jules Buckley, the live improvisation between orchestra and musical artists will be highly-charged and totally unique.
“Gabriel Prokofiev’¬s Concerto for Turntables”
Heritage Orchestra feat. Gabriel Prokofiev and DJ Switch
A risk-taking performance with human beatboxer and musical maestro Beardyman.
As a four time national DJ battle champion and current world champion , DJ Switch’s shows contain a repertoire of spectacular visual tricks that astonish and delight the crowd.
Grandson of Russian composer and founder of record label Nonclassical, Prokofiev is a force to be reckoned with. On a mission to break down and repackage classical music for new audiences, this eclectic composer has worked on numerous underground and music projects as well as producing his own hip-hop and electro remixes.
World-class solo human beatbox, Beardyman uses his voice and live synths driven through cutting edge sound technology to create dance-inducing layered rhythms. Fully produced songs are improvised and created entirely from scratch make for a breathtaking soundscape.
