Collaborating with old friends Marcellus and Alex!
MARCELLUS NEALY

We first worked with Marcellus (above left, with Addictive TV's Graham, right) more than a decade ago when he brought us to Japan for an event he was organising.  A truly mega-talented chap, it really is fantastic to have him as part of Orchestra of Samples.

Based in Tokyo, Marcellus is an American poet, singer, and spoken word artist and has spent the last 6 years performing as a rapper and MC with the multi-platinum Japanese pop group Dreams Come True.  With his own band, Modernday Soothsayers, Marcellus has released two full-length albums “The Temple Gates” and “Master Fong”.  He also released the full-length album "The World" with German techno maestro Johannes Heil.

Outside of the performance world Marcellus is also an accomplished music photographer, and in 2012 was winner of the "Project Imaginat10n" photography contest, a competition sponsored by Canon and Oscar winning director Ron Howard.
ALEJANDRO DE VALERA

Originally from Venezuela but now living in Paris, Alex - as we know him - is another long time friend and collaborator of Addictive TV.  We've worked on several projects together including our live cinema performance The Eye of the Pilot, which we toured internationally for a number of years in the mid-2000's, from San Francisco to Moscow and interestingly at places like the Pompidou Centre in Paris and in Ireland at the Cork Opera House.

Alex is an expert in playing custom-built fretless guitars, and his weapon of choice is a rather different 7-string guitar that he conceived and built.  With this, he's able to adjust more easily the pitch which, he says, is useful when jamming along with DJs!  He records under the name The Nebulae of Something and to date has released the solo album "Black and White Ultravision".
