The Cinematic Orchestra, Tramshed, Cardiff - 24th June 2017

This was just an amazing concert by extremely consumate performers. I really hope to be able to see them again before too long.

For me, the best band in the world and just as good live as recorded. Just wish they played for longer!

The Cinematic Orchestra, Tramshed, Cardiff - 24th June 2017

Been to Tramshed a few of times now and seen a variety of bands there. The Cinematic Orchestra are an amazing band and I love the detail they put into their music. Didn't think the sound was very clear at the start, but a couple songs in and it was all good. It was an appreciative crowd that listened and apart from the few "loud talkers" it was a great atmosphere. What made my night was seeing the energy the drummer puts into the music, can't wait to see them again!

The Cinematic Orchestra consists of a live band and DJs to play improvised electronica and nu-jazz accompanied by samples and turntablist scratching. The project was created in 1999 by Jay Swinscoe whilst working as an employee for hip independent label Ninja Tune. Their work is considered something greater than mere music for its own sake and has seen them recruited to be used for various events and art projects.

The first album was released by Ninja Tunes in 1999 and was titled Motion. The debut album was built around the huge amount of samples amassed by Swinscoe who presented them to the band to learn and perform live. The live band were recorded and made into tracks which were then mixed and edited by Swinsoe. The resulting album was so impressive it prompted an invite to the band to perform at the 1999 Director’s Guild Awards where Stanley Kubrick was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. They were also invited to create a new score for the silent Soviet film Man With A Movie Camera, an experimental film of urban life made at the end of the twenties that posses no characters or conventional story. The band played live along with a screening of the avant-garde film.

Their second album Every Day was released in 2002 and saw them work with the renowned South London rapper Roots Manuva. Their 2007 album Ma Fleur included the talents of Patrick Wtason and Lou Rhodes.

Previous to The Cinematic Orchestra, Swinscoe had already been working in music having formed the group Crabladder which released a single through his own label Power Tool. He was also given a DJ spot on Heart FM.
