2013 The Orchestrion Project: Double CD

Label: Nonesuch

Musicians: Pat Metheny

In 2010, 19-time Grammy Award winner Pat Metheny took his musical exploration to a new territory with his Orchestrion, a computer controlled mini-orchestra capable of responding to his touch on guitar. After releasing the Orchestrion record, Metheny and his “band” hit the road, playing over 100 concerts around the world, culminating with the recording of The Orchestrion Project in Brooklyn, NY. This recording showcases the full evolution of the Orchestrion as documented at the tail end of a sprawling world tour and is available on Nonesuch. The double-disc set features all five sections of Orchestrion—“a soaring five-movement suite featuring some of the most intricate music he’s ever created” (Boston Globe)—plus eight additional Metheny compositions reimagined with the Orchestrion.
