Commissioned by Bristol Old Vic a new Sky Orchestra composition has just been performed in Bristol.

The composition by Dan Jones was created by an incredible line-up of Bristol musical and artistic contributors. Grant Marshall, founder member of Massive AttackStew Jackson, current writer and producer for Massive Attack, and Adrian Utley, founder member of Portishead, were all involved in either creating or playing on the sound track.

Outgoing Bristol City Poet Vanessa Kisuule contributed poetry, whilst renowned theatre and TV writer, composer and sound designer Elizabeth Purnell created the string arrangements. Drew Morgan was the cello soloist for the piece.

Whilst the wind wasn’t strong enough this time, for the balloons to get across the city, the experience for those on the ground was still spectacular.  Read press release.

Raising money to support up and coming musicians in Bristol, this new Sky Orchestra music is now for sale through BandCamp.
