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.


Richard James, a.k.a. Aphex Twin, was commissioned to compose a series of short pieces for the European Culture Congress in Poland. His commissioned works, available here, were produced in response to the composer Krzysztof Penderecki. But James also conceived a "remote orchestra" piece while in Poland, wherein he used midi controllers, headphones, and remote visual cues to conduct and control the sound of a 48-piece orchestra and 24-piece choir. Warp pointed us to video footage of the eery and highly cinematic performance, which took place on September 10 at the Centennial Hall in Wroclaw, Poland, and included members the AUKSO chamber orchestra and OCTAVA ensemble+.
