Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra Build Crystal Structures of Chamber-Dance Music
< 1 day ago
London-based dance music artist, classically trained pianist/composer, and Chicago native Kate Simko along with the London Electronic Orchestra, combine harp, violin, cello & laptop, live in the studio. Layers of clubby electronics and keyboards support delicate harp, violin and cello melodies. Altogether, the result is a buoyant, airy, and uplifting hybrid dance music - something like a film score for a documentary about a days-long party in Ibiza.

Often eclectic; always interesting; always an adventure. I've been introduced to a lot of new music over the years.
