Event Details

Hidden Orchestra is an imagined orchestra compiled in multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer Joe Acheson’s studio using many separate recordings of guest musicians from a wide variety of backgrounds, combined with field recordings, bass, and intricate layers of drums.

Latest album 'To Dream is to Forget' was released in 2023, the first full Hidden Orchestra record since 2017's 'Dawn Chorus', and coming off the back of a pandemic during which Joe released the award-winning Creaks OST for cult Czech games studio Amanita Design, an album with Cerys Matthews and ten of the UK's foremost poets on Decca Records, and a series of multi-speaker outdoor woodland sound/music installations in Kew Gardens' botanical forest at Wakehurst.

The current live band features drummers Jamie Graham and Tim Lane, with Joe adding live effects to the drums whilst making improvised dub arrangements of Hidden Orchestra tracks. Wherever possible, the shows also feature visuals created by Tom Newell of Limbic Cinema.
