Here’s something very interesting and with miles of potential happening in my home city, Birmingham!
The Alternative Dubstep Orchestra was set up in November 2010 as a ‘resident’ new experimental collective of The Honeycomb Club, a monthly event which aims to provide a live platform for dubstep as we know it.
This is a project, a philosophy and an evolving musical experiment.
Expect interactive, improvisational, reworked and composed pieces for 2011, always with an orchestral twist.
The Alternative Dubstep Orchestra (ADO) has been set up as a collective of Birmingham based musicians and DJs who bring a new live element to the dubstep world.
This collaborative ongoing project aims to unite musicians and DJs, who would not usually get the chance to work together to experiment, rework, compose and improvise orchestral dubstep.
The ADO’s all-star local line-up is evolving and expanding constantly, and creates the ‘resident’ collective of The Honeycomb Club at The Hare and Hounds (first Thursday of every month) Birmingham UK, taking elements of the ‘featured’ act (usually non-dubstep) and reworking classics alongside new productions in a new live format.
