From Electronic Dance to Orchestral Music

My coworker Alex reminded me of the Kickstarter project by the electronic music artist BT where he would use an orchestra in a live performance to replace most of the electronic components of his top songs. Well, the album was released! The music is great. Check out the Kickstarter campaign video below, the wrap up video, and links to the album.

WHAT IS ELECTRONIC OPUS?

Electronic Opus is a unique and immersive Electronic Symphonic album project featuring the most popular songs from the award winning, world renowned, multiple platinum artist, film composer and technologist BT.  BT is considered one of the people who transformed modern music forever and is widely acknowledged as the godfather of trance.

Start with the power and excitement of electronic dance music (EDM), blend in the emotional and classical tones of a symphony orchestra, and the result is Electronic Opus, a first-of-its-kind, high-energy album and live concert experience arriving in March 2015.

Produced by BT and the award-winning composer and Video Games Live creator Tommy Tallarico, Electronic Opus features BT’s signature EDM hits re-imagined, re-arranged and remixed with a full orchestra.
