On 17th October Hidden Orchestra played to a very warm sold out crowd at Union Chapel, London. It was an incredibly special gig, guesting not only Phil Cardwell on Trumpet but also Tomáš Dvořák – aka producer-composer Floex – on clarinet, and the uber-talented Lumen on the visuals.
You can read a full review of the gig from aaamusic here,
but it needs to be said that Lumen pulled it out the bag for this one…BIGUP!
“The AV show designed and controlled live by Lumen deserves a special mention. Their usual setup is impressive enough, with horizontal pillars of white disks and a large overhung screen projected with interesting, modernist images which mutate in time with the music. However, Lumen also made incredibly intelligent use of the chapel’s architecture, with a mind-melting lightshow projected against the pillars, the decorative wall tiling, and, most impressively, the huge, circular stained glass window above the altar, which forms the centrepiece of the whole venue. Lights and images flickered and moved across the chapel interior, creating an odd, arresting feeling that the building was coming alive, slowly responding to Hidden Orchestra’s transcendental sounds.’
