PERFORMING their latest audiovisual sampling show, acclaimed duo Addictive TV brings their ‘Orchestra of Samples’ project to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis.
Six years in the making, Graham Daniels and Mark Vidler filmed improvised recording sessions with musicians around the world, then ingeniously sampled and spliced them together to create the project. The result is a digital super-group of international artists who never met, but play together on-screen.
‘Orchestra of Samples’ features top musicians in their field and documents a range of unusual localised instruments on recordings made in Brazil, Kazakhstan, Egypt, Senegal, Colombia, across Europe and even Bhutan in the Himalayas. It’s a unique musical journey without borders.
Take over 200 musicians from nearly 30 countries and imagine that they never met but are sampled, combined and re-imagined to create new music of extraordinary unique fusions crossing multiple styles and cultures.

Daniels commented: “We began Orchestra of Samples with no preconceptions, just a curiosity to explore musical possibilities. It’s about bringing people together, about creating something that you didn’t know you could.”
This audiovisual show will be held at the Marine Theatre on Friday, July 13. Tickets start from £8.10 and are available by calling 01297 442138 or at www.marinetheatre.com, where a booking fee may apply.
