Description

Following on from the double CD Theta Three, Orchestra Of The Upper Atmosphere now release Theta Four early as a single CD, so excited to share the music the minute it is ready (Theta Five not far away)

 

This improvising rock group references the musical innovations of Terry Riley, the swooping exuberance of Alice Coltrane and a mastery of contemporary electronics.
 
Orchestra Of The Upper Atmosphere still intend a Big Listen, this time round the core six piece group explode into Theta Four from the very first track- a cinematic epic with powerful brooding string arrangements from Martin Archer and the re- introduction of his performance poetry/improvising group Juxtavoices, who chant and improvise their way into a new deep dimension of sound.
The CD continues to surprise and delight with spacious improvisations, composed pieces and all combinations in between, from hypnotic groove-driven drama to " What the hell did I just hear?"
 
Theta Four features some of their best playing yet- virtuoso horns, wind, violin and keys, creative drums bass and percussion and haunting vocal lines. Seamless arrangements evoke an incredible variety of moods across a single CD which is energetic and confident. The musicians complement each other well with sheer enjoyment and it makes for a positive and addictive listen.
