Tomáš Dvořák (Floex), Tom Hodge and PRSO are delighted to present their first project together!
In cooperation with Mercury KX and Decca Publishing, the artists will present their brand new record ‘A Portrait of John Doe’ and realise it live for the very first time with the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra in the special surroundings of the orchestra’s Studio 1.
What began as an intimate and organically evolving project between the two artists in Floex’s Prague studio, exploring their shared love of clarinet, piano and electronics was at once transformed by their collaboration with the "Prague Symphonic Orchestra" to create an album with a deep blend and intense synergy between orchestra and electronica.
With the album not due out until 2018, this pair of September live concerts offers a unique chance to preview this brand new collaboration between two deeply independent musical spirits and Prague’s favourite orchestra!
Joining the 40 piece orchestra will be the artists’ own 5 piece band (Floex - clarinet and midimarimba, Tom Hodge - piano, Kim Sheehan - voice, Chris Warner - synths, Jakub Tengler - drums) especially commissioned for the project and drawing on top musicians from Prague and London.
“A Portrait of John Doe" is the musical story of a common man making his way through our modern world, complete with all its digital, mechanised, dislocating challenges, all the while keeping his wry sense of humour about his 'battle' against our strange world.
