For their first show of the year and as part of their 10th anniversary tour prior to the release of their new record on Alien Transistor the one and only Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra land at the Volkbühne’s Roter Salon to play another of their awe inspiring live concerts.
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 Daniel Glatzel, the man behind the force of nature known as the AMEO, juggles genres, styles and music-historical references in a way that’s enough to make you dizzy.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! AMEO need to be seen (and heard) to be believed. They always live up to their name: its certainly mega, its definately an orchestra and for all we know, they are out of this world.
