Bathurst is pleased to announce the return of The Motion Orchestra with their new single 'Sonorous' taken from their forthcoming album 'All One' set for release in 2020.
Formed in 2017, this studio project consists of Alexander Bednasch on Double-Bass, Mark Matthes on Violins, Andy Sells on Drums and David Hanke on electronics and production. Though influenced heavily by Neo-Classical and Jazz sensibilities they occupy a musical space that sits in neither sphere, with a compositional style that deftly fuses the orchestral and electronic worlds.
Their debut single – 'All One' was a gorgeous piece inspired by the notion that everything comes from the same source, the same starting point. And it was well received, garnering support from BBC 6Music and Bandcamp Weekly.
Second single 'Sonorous' is just as elegant as their first offering and looks set to continue the upward trajectory the band are currently on. Starting with a repeated electronic motif, it incorporates piano chord harmonics, tasteful bass notes, and swirling jazz drum patterns that interplay wonderfully with beautiful string arrangements, altogether creating a truly captivating character.
The release is comprised of both the original version as well as a the arrangement without the drums.
The Motion Orchestra is currently in the process of producing their live show for performances of the debut album.
