THE ORCHESTRION PROJECT OUT OCTOBER 9
Eagle Rock Entertainment has announced the release of Pat Metheny: The Orchestrion Project, the groundbreaking solo endeavor from one of the most innovative musicians and composers on the scene today. The program will be available on both 2-disc DVD, single disc 3D/2D Blu-ray, and digitally on October 9, 2012 [Prebook Order Date September 14, MSRP $19.98 for 2DVD, $24.98 for 3D Blu-ray set, and $12.99 Digital].
Based on a childhood fascination with his grandfather's player piano, 19 time Grammy Award winner Pat Metheny, commissioned and built The Orchestrion, a mechanically controlled mini-orchestra capable of responding to his touch on the guitar. This innovative project brought about a completely unique approach to solo performance. The collaboration between this master guitarist and his wildest imagination has resulted in a fascinating and absolutely one of a kind musical experience.
Shot over a two-day period in November 2010 at St. Elias Church in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, The Orchestrion Project showcases Metheny single-handedly operating this symphony of instruments in one illustrious treat for the senses.
