Hidden Orchestra release new album, Dawn Chorus
Dawn Chorus is out now on Tru Thoughts Records.
Each track is set to a different one of Joe Acheson‘s dawn chorus recordings, and connected to his past travels and projects through many field recordings and appearances from diverse guest musicians.
Dawn Chorus includes the 2016 track Wingbeats, and the recent single Still, and features Acheson’s trademark beat-driven orchestral textures with contributions from regular members of his imaginary orchestra – Jamie Graham (drums) and Tim Lane (drums and trombone), Poppy Ackroyd (violin), Su-a Lee (cello), Mary Macmaster (harps), Philip Cardwell (trumpet), Tomáš Dvořák (clarinet), Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn (Uillean pipes), and Jiří Javůrek (bass clarinet).
Pre-order vinyl and digital from Etch Shop and Bandcamp
Super-Limited Bundle now sold out – but limited edition ultraclear vinyl still available from Bandcamp and independent record stores.

Still Single & Video
Still was released as a single in May, featuring the full track, an edit, and an alternate ‘no drums’ version.
The track started out as a collaboration with Prague quartet Clarinet Factory.

Dawn Chorus London Album Launch
Soundcrash will be hosting our London album launch at Islington Assembly Hall on June 29th.
The show will feature a lot of the new album, and live visuals from Tom Lumen.
Also delighted to announce that Poppy Ackroyd will be opening the night to showcase her new piano mini-album Sketches, her first release since signing to One Little Indian.
A symmetrical remix of Max Cooper‘s track Symmetry (feat. Tom Hodge), released on his Emergence Remixed album back in March.
Look out for Max returning the favour amongst an increasingly exciting lineup of producers on the Dawn Chorus Remixed album, which should be out towards the end of the year…
Thanks and Best Wishes
