: An Orchestral Journey into Drum & Bass at the Barbican Center

A Guildhall collaboration with Ram Records for OrchestRAM. The evening will feature orchestral renditions of tracks from the iconic label’s catalogue, performed by over 40 musicians, in the first-ever full-length drum & bass production in the Barbican Hall. This celebration of drum & bass will take audiences on an epic orchestral journey into the genre, with the Guildhall Session Orchestra – a fully professional ensemble of alumni from Guildhall School – being joined by DJ Raiser.
OrchestRAM at the Barbican is a continuation of the previous year's event, a brainchild of Dan Shorterns. With the Barbican as a new location, we planned for the projection space and managed a small team to put together the last ten minutes of parts one and two.
