about

Shadow Orchestra debut album first release in 2005. This beguling collection of tracks, (which gave birth to the band as we now know now it), started out as a studio only project for producer Chris Bangs and features oringinal versions of live favourites, ‘Plucking and Bowing’, ‘Creaking and Bowing’ and behemoth post rock athem ‘Sweet as a Nut’.

The album is a glorious mish-mash of found sounds, haunting melodies, crazed rhythms, and tricks and surprises, exploring the joyous possibilities of melody, rhythm and texture. Album highlights include a gorgeous collaboration with new Scottish singer-songwriter and double bassist, Amy Duncan on Rain Music, the theme to Backpacker Orpheus, a play about the Asian Tsunami which premiered in London’s West End, composed using recordings taken from a Javanese Gamelan and a celebration of the lost art of whistling on Spring 2005.
