Concert: The Colorist Orchestra & Emiliana Torrini
May 29, 19:0hr, Casa de Cultură a Studenților
The famous Icelandinc female artist Emiliana Torrini has clinched a collaboration with the Belgian band The Colorist Orchestra through an album that The Guardian described as „a vribant and colorful collection of fusions of the classic and contemporary”.
Emiliana Torrini’s voice, seldom compared to the one of Bjork, can be also listened on the soundtrack of such films as The Lord of the Rings (2002, by Peter Jackson), Men, Women & Children (2014, by Jason Reitman) or Tenderness (2009, by John Polson). Her music recolored by the eight members of The Colorist Orchestra, their hipnotizing sound born from the mix of classic and original music instruments are dubbed by a fantastic setting- a wooden installation in motion.
