While she is busy working on her fourth solo album, Berlin musician Clara Hill still has time for an exciting orchestra project.
[audio:Mira Mode Orchestra & Clara Hill – Medley.mp3]After three albums on Sonar Kollektiv and countless tours all over the world, she has constantly developed her own musical language with the focus firmly on genre-spanning, strong compositions far removed from musical trends.
The Mira Mode Orchestra is a young twelve piece Berlin collective of musicians led by the composer Ede Merkel and including a full rhythm section, 3 horns and five string players. Besides their own compositions and new arrangements they will also be performing new previously unheard songs from the forthcoming Clara Hill album.
The new album will be a journey through a multitude of musical directions. It is by design a multi-genre album so as to not be limited or constrained musically or stylistically.
“While the rest of the world is being buzzed awake by alarms, cinching up their ties, and rushing out the door to catch the commuter train, clara hill takes an all-together different approach to life. clara stops to smell roses. she listens to the wind rustling the leaves of trees, birds singing off the distance, and couples whispering to each other on a nearby park bench. in short, she takes in the world around her and uses it as the creative fuel for her deeply personal musical compositions.” xlr8r
