The xx Symphony on BBC iPlayer

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with The xx and BBC Philharmonic Orchestra (conducted by Clark Rundell) along with Radio 1 for The xx Symphony in Bridlington, Yorkshire. Thanks for everyone involved who made it happen – an experience I’ll never forget. I’ve posted some more pictures of the event and rehearsals on my blog here. [update] It’s not available to watch on iPlayer any more although there is a low-res version on Youtube which I’ve linked to on my Listen/Watch page. Hopefully a higher resolution video will surface soon!

The xx / BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

Very happy to announce I’m presently collaborating with Mercury prize winning band The xx and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra for a concert on the 19th September which will be broadcast live on Radio 1 for Zane Lowe. It will be a mixture of new orchestral arrangements of songs from “xx” and the forthcoming “Coexist” which will be released on September 10th. Tickets will be made available via a random draw..
