Jess Gillam's Virtual Scratch Orchestra

Jess Gillam's Virtual Scratch Orchestra
Saxophonist Jess Gillam is inviting performers to join her Virtual Scratch Orchestra which will debut on 17 April 2020. The idea is that performers will play David Bowie's Where are we now? from Gillam's debut album, Rise, each recording their performance at home and the results will then be mixed together.

Jess Gillam said: ‘For me, music is all about people! People uniting, people sharing and people listening. At a very difficult time, when it is not currently possible to be physically together to share and make music, hopefully this is a way in which we can create something together from afar. ‘Where Are We Now?’ is one of my favourite songs by David Bowie. It’s hauntingly beautiful and seems very appropriate as we all reflect on the world and what is happening around us. This is the first song he released after a long period of silence in 2013.

There are full instructions, parts to download and a click track, on Jess Gillam's website. You have to have sent the recordings in by Friday 10 April 2020 at 6pm, and the results will debut on Gillam's Instagram page at 6pm on Friday 17 April 2020.
