Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project
Label: EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT
“The Orchestrion Project” was filmed at the former St Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in November 2010. It features Pat Metheny on guitar performing with the Orchestrion, a vast collection of mechanical instruments that surround Pat Metheny in this atmospheric setting. The focus of the performance is the “Orchestrion Suite”, a work written specifically for this combination and debuted on Pat Metheny’s “Orchestrion” album released earlier in 2010. Added to this are other tracks from across Metheny’s prolific career going right back to “Unity Village” from his debut solo album “Bright Size Life” in 1976 and including other tracks from the seventies, eighties and nineties. This is a unique collaboration between a master guitarist and the pinnacle of mechanical music.
