As a release concert for their brand new album, Bum Bum, which is coming soon on Alien Transistor the ever wonderful Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra take to the stage at Heimathafen Neukölln.
You might have seen them playing with wonderful German band The Notwist, but the Orchestra are an unmissable spectacle in their own right.
Whoever claims to have heard anything like this before is lying. This is a 20 piece orchestra, led by a 25 year old Berlin based composer, set off a fire-work of of energy, musicality and fresh ideas. Daniel Glatzel, the man behind the force of nature known as the ANDROMEDA MEGA EXPRESS ORCHESTRA, juggles genres, styles and music-historical references in a way that’s enough to make you dizzy.

Jazz is just a ballpark figure here. We’re talking about everything from minimal music and diverse scores from film, romanticism, modern classical and Bartok right through to Zappa. Glatzel also cites as musical influences computer games, cartoons, shabby never-ending advertisement shows and elevators in expensive hotels.
The music of AMEO is so rich in direct or indirect quotes that you really don’t know where to begin in attempting to describe then, and any attempt ist actually futile. Just listen!
