This year’s Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) will open with ‘Jameszoo & Metropole Orkest – Fool’, a collaboration Jameszoo and the world’s leading non-classical orchestra Metropole Orkest. The event will take place in the Melkweg on October 18. Tickets are now on sale.
Metropole Orkest chief conductor Jules Buckley explains: “This collaboration between Jameszoo and Metropole Orkest for ADE just feels right. Jameszoo is an incredible artist, making a fresh statement right now internationally and I feel the combination of his compositions from Fool, reworked and presented uniquely with Metropole this autumn, is sure to lay down a marker or two”.
During the opening night of ADE, the Metropole Orkest wants to take on the challenge to translate the ‘uninhabited computer jazz’, as Jameszoo likes to call his work, to an acoustic setting, resulting in a live experience of unique sounding experimental electronic music.
Jameszoo, real name Mitchel van Dinther, adds: ”When ADE and Metropole Orkest approached me I was flattered to say the least. I’m excited to see how ‘Fool’ will blossom. The Metropole is a very special and dynamic Orchestra extremely capable when in mr Buckley’s hands. I’ve never found peace in thinking the album was finished, so I’m very lucky to transform it once more.”
