The US house duo's collaborative show will happen on December 11th.
The performance, which is happening on December 11th at the Zurich Tonhalle, will see the US duo teaming up with some soloists from the Tonhalle Orchestra, which is conducted by Lionel Bringuier, and Stephen Hussey, who worked with Octave One on the "Blackwater" live strings mix in 2001.
Project leader Pierre Bachmann explains: "The TonhalleLate event series is carefully crafted around a theme identified in the classical programme for the selected artists and choreographed accordingly. Invited electronic live acts are chosen for their state-of-the-art musical approach, their fit with the classical pieces/theme, as well as their representativeness of the zeitgeist."
On the night, cellist Daniel Muller-Schott will kick things off with a performance alongside the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra. Octave One will then step up for their slot with the orchestra. "When the opportunity of doing a special performance with members of the Tonhalle Orchestra was presented to us, we immediately thought of our time working with arranger Stephen Hussey," Octave One say. "Things got even better when Tonhalle were up for bringing him in on this project. We're really excited about this collaboration and can't wait to bring it to life."
Octave One are known for their hardware-laden live sets—check out their RA Sessions performance below.
