Hidden Orchestra is an imagined orchestra created by composer/producer Joe Acheson
Currently based in Brighton (UK)
The releases feature a wide variety of guest musicians from different musical backgrounds, recorded separately, and combined by Joe in his studio to create an 'imaginary orchestra' that doesn't really exist.
Dark orchestral textures, with field recordings, bass, and layers of drums and percussion.
Since 2010, the band have toured in over 30 countries, selling out venues from Edinburgh and London to Prague, Moscow, Athens and Istanbul. Equally at home in clubs, churches, cinemas, museums and concert halls, their many festival appearances include Glastonbury's West Holts Stage, WOMAD, Green Man, T in the Park (UK), NH7 Weekender (India), Fusion (Germany), Outlook, Soundwave (Croatia), Pohoda (Slovakia), and Colours of Ostrava (CZ), and countless jazz festivals including North Sea Jazz (Netherlands), Hamburg Uberjazz (Germany), Pori (Finland), London (UK), Copenhagen (Denmark), Timisoara (Romania), Skopje (Macedonia).
