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.
