The xx and LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl

Proud to have collaborated again with Mercury winning band The xx for their biggest live show to date at the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic Orchestra. The arrangements were overseen and conducted by David Campbell… based on The xx Symphony which was performed last year by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, live on Radio 1 for Zane Lowe.

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!

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..
