Barry Adamson Live

Barry Adamson Live at Queen Elizabeth Hall (2007)
Barry Adamson / London Jazz Festival / Central Control International

Collaboration with Barry Adamson - solo artist, Bad Seeds/Visage/Magazine alumnus and film composer for the likes of David Lynch and Oliver Stone. As Artist In Residence for the 2007 London Jazz Festival, Barry presented a selection of his favourite film themes in a concert featuring guest appearances from Nick Cave, David McAlmont and many others. I was commissioned by Barry to orchestrate and prepare arrangements of his choice of movie themes, ranging from Henry Mancini to Ennio Morricone, for a 30-piece orchestra, and also to rehearse and conduct the orchestra live on stage at the sold-out Queen Elizabeth Hall concert.

Shown here is the performance of Jacques Brel's "Next", featuring Nick Cave.

With thanks to filmmaker .Jon Sinclair.
