  • Слайдер для Orhestra of Samples (UK). Video concert

The artists use tiny film and video clips as a material for creating original music and outstanding visual collages. Orhestra of Samples invented their own genre of "videomashup", which was highly rated both by the Hollywood studios and the "Apple" top-management.

"Orchestra of Samples" is a unique project based on sampling recording sessions the duo filmed with more than 100 musicians around the world, creating a digital supergroup of international artists who never met.

Trail-blazers in the art of audio/video remixing, audiovisual artists "Addictive TV" are currently working on a project called "Orchestra of Samples". Filming musicians from around the world, then sampling those recordings to create new visual music, this boundary-crossing project, where audiences actually get to see the samples, celebrates the fusion of music styles and genres. The performance will feature some of the artists previously filmed who'll join "Addictive TV" on stage.

Over the last 2 years, "Addictive TV" have filmed a large number of musicians and artists on their travels, while performing internationally. Countries have included Brazil, Mexico, Egypt, Tunisia, Israel, Senegal and all across Europe. "Addictive TV" have filmed musicians playing everything from traditional instruments like West African Huddu guitar and Eastern European lute-style Cobza to Amazonian traditional singing and Turkish Tanbur.

The project is supported by the Paris venues "Canal 93" and "Le Hangar", where "Addictive TV" are currently artists in residence. Other venue partners helping us to film local artists include "L'Echonova" in Brittany, France and "Watermans" in London.
