Orchestral release from Markus Reuter, Crimson ProjeKCt live

On June 17, Iapetus and Unsung Records will release Todmorden 513: Concerto for Orchestra, an orchestrated version of Markus Reuter's 2011 electronic collection Todmorden 513 performed by the Colorado Chamber Orchestra with orchestration and musical direction by Thomas A. Blomster.

by Jon Davis, Published 2014-05-28

The physical release includes a CD containing the music plus a DVD featuring a hi-resolution 5.1 mix and an alternate 2.0 mix by ambient music pioneer Robert Rich, along with a documentary about the making and realization of the project. In related news, Reuter has put together a collection of improvisations from recent Crimson ProjeKCt shows, released as Sultry Kissing Lounge and available now.

From the Iapetus press release:

Markus Reuter, composer and touch guitarist with Tony Levin‘s Stick Men and The Crimson ProjeKCt releases his first symphonic composition, Todmorden 513. This piece - a re-orchestration of a mostly electronic work - was recorded by the Colorado Chamber Orchestra after extensive rehearsals and orchestration sessions at their base in Denver, Colorado. Now a recorded version is finally available in, both, stereo and surround sound formats.
The Crimson ProjeKCt’s recent Spring Tour was a resounding success, and the band are looking forward to heading back out on the road in late June for further shows, culminating in a couple of US dates in mid August. Also now available from band member Markus Reuter (who also produced the recent Live in Tokyo for the InsideOut label) is Sultry Kissing Lounge (Live Openings from The Crimson ProjeKCt Spring Tour 2014).
Compiled from a selection of opening live improvs performed by Markus throughout The Crimson ProjeKCt’s Spring 2014 European Tour, these instant guitar compositions set the tone for each concert and provided a launch pad for drummers Pat and Tobias to begin their opening drum duet.

And, as if that's not enough, The Crimson ProjeKCt continues its world tour...
