Hidden Orchestra head to Metronome as part of the ‘To Dream is to Forget’ tour.

Hidden Orchestra is an imagined orchestra compiled in multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer Joe Acheson’s studio using many separate recordings of guest musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds, combined with field recordings, bass, and intricate layers of drums. Alongside the solo studio albums, the live band has been an integral part of the project from the start.

The music is a melting-pot of Joe’s extremely varied musical experiences and influences from an array of genres from across time and around the world, and has been described as electronic music made with acoustic instruments and natural sounds. Music built on contrasts, at once anxious and calming, dark and light, fast and slow – full of abstract emotion which is open to the listener’s interpretation.

2022 saw the return of AV shows from the Hidden Orchestra live band, following a pandemic during which Joe released the award-winning “Creaks OST” for cult Czech games studio Amanita Design, an album with Cerys Matthews and ten of the UK’s foremost poets on Decca Records, and a series of multi-speaker outdoor woodland sound/music installations in Kew Gardens’ botanical forest at Wakehurst.
