Pat Metheny Announces New Leg Of “Orchestrion Tour”

September 7, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News, Tour Dates & News

 Pat Metheny has announced that he’ll be bringing his Orchestrion  Tour to another 19 North American performance halls beginning in October.

The Orchestrion album, which came out in January on Nonesuch Records. Orchestrion brings a musical idea from the late 19th and early 20th centuries—a large mechanical multi-instrument device that utilizes actual orchestral instruments of various types, called an “orchestrion”—to the technologies of today. Metheny’s concept includes a large ensemble of acoustic instruments—including several pianos, drum kit, marimbas, “guitar-bots,” dozens of percussion instruments, and even cabinets of carefully tuned bottles. Through Metheny’s guitar and compositional mind, five new original pieces showcase the instruments as they are struck, plucked, and otherwise played via the technology of solenoid switches and pneumatics. Metheny worked for months with a brilliant team of inventors to develop and assemble the “New Orchestrion” for this project.
