Addictive TV – “Orchestra of Samples” is our performance project based on sampling recording sessions we’ve filmed with over 200 hundred musicians around the world, splicing them together to create a digital super group of international artists who never met but are projected playing together on-screen. Exploring a new form of collaboration, we’ve spent the last few years filming improvised recordings sessions with artists playing all manner of instruments in well over twenty-five countries.
