THE ORB + Guests
7:45pm, Friday 3rd May, Club 85, Hitchin
Very pleased to announce we are bringing THE ORB to Club 85 in Hitchin for an intimate show on Friday 3rd May.
Thirty-five years since Alex Paterson lit the multi-coloured touchpaper on The Orb’s interstellar space odyssey, he continues to swerve, becoming his own tribute act by never standing still and preparing a cluster of fresh new projects.
SETI, the latest collaboration between Alex Paterson and Andy Falconer of The Orb, takes listeners on an enchanting nighttime voyage through the cosmos. It’s an “ambient unplugged” experience filled with acoustic instruments and nostalgic samples, bridging the realms of old-world charm and uncharted territories. The album presents a harmonious blend of glacial-paced melodies, Nyabinghi percussion, mandolin, and acoustic guitar, offering a unique fusion of elements.
SETI, which stands for Search For Extra terrestrial Intelligence, not only explores the universe but also provides a comfortable, chill-out space within its musical ambience. This record is a testament to the creative synergy between Paterson and Falconer, who effortlessly navigate uncharted musical territory, building on decades of trust and shared curiosity.
What’s more, 2024 will be graced by an up-to-date Best of The Orb set.
