Click on the link for the project's own site, it includes much more than here, with a full blog of all recording sessions, live shows and more (for info, we no longer update this blog here).

Orchestra of Samples is our live project and album based on sampling recording sessions we’ve spent many years filming with hundreds of musicians worldwide improvising on all manner of instruments, splicing them together to create a digital supergroup of international artists who never met.

Canal 93 recording session #3
THEO HAKOLA :  Presented with the opportunity of working with renowned American singer-songwriter Theo Hakola, we jumped at the chance, inviting him to sing on the project.

Prolific musician, lyricist and cultural activist, Theo has lived in Paris since the 1970s, where he formed punk band Orchestre Rouge, before later forming Passion Fodder - one of the most renowned cult French bands of the 1980s.  The group toured extensively, supporting acts like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and recorded five albums, including Fat Tuesday which they toured in the US, and where they eventually recorded their final two albums.

Theo returned to Paris in the 90's, embarking on a solo career and has to date released six albums under his own name - including 2012's excellent This Land Is Not Your Land.  He's also worked on a number of albums as producer for different artists, including the first album by French band Noir Desir, whose impact on the French music scene assumed Nirvana-esque proportions!  And away from the music biz, Theo's also published a number of novels and acted in both French films and on stage.
LUCAS FOX :  We've known Lucas for a quite a few years now, and we're stoked he's joined the project!  Lucas is a producer, musician and music-supervisor on movies, and in 1975 was the original drummer for British heavy metal band Motörhead - performing on the album On Parole, and rocking the stage and bursting eardrums with Lemmy & co before spinning out.  He returned to the band for a special one-off 10th anniversary gig in 1985. 

He was also drummer with several groups, including punk band Warsaw Pakt, working on their album Needle Time.  As a producer, Lucas worked with many indie bands, including Batmen, A Wedding Anniversary and Paul Collins Beat.  He still found the time to drum though, playing with groups including Australian band The Scientist - in fact opening for The Sisters of Mercy's last UK tour before they split.  He also produced Giving Ground, the first single for Andrew Eldrich's side project Sisterhood and worked on their first album Gift.

Lucas is presently music supervisor for films with publishing company Notting Hill Music.
