The Cinematic Orchestra

Price: Free


Established in 1999, the brainchild of Jason Swinscoe, The Cinematic Orchestra are a nu jazz collective that fuse a live band with electronic samples and a turntablist to deliver a sound that straddles between jazz improvisation and downtempo electronica. 

Their critically-acclaimed debut album Motion, released in 1999, resulted in an invitation from the organisers of Porto European City of Culture festival to write a new score for Soviet director, Dziga Vertov’s 1929 silent documentary Man With A Movie Camera. This would be the first of two soundtrack albums that helped The Cinematic Orchestra live up to their name.

Since Motion, the group have gone on to release three further studio albums, Every Day (2002), Ma Fleur (2007) and most recently 2019’s To Believe. And, in December they'll be able to see them perform an exclusively recorded concert in a locked down Royal Festival Hall.

To celebrate this, five classic live performances by The Cinematic Orchestra have been pulled together for your enjoyment.
