Emiliana Torrini & The Colorist
THU, 12 JUL 2018
Emiliana Torrini: Icelandic with Italian origins, in twenty years of career she has been part of GusGus and she has written, interpreted and produced numerous songs for come important artists like Kylie Minogue, Thievery Corporation many others. She has participated in the multi-platinum soundtrack of “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers“, and she also composed the hit “Jungle Drum”. She can count four albums in her career: the last is “Tookah” (2013). During the same year, the other half of this project, The Colorist Orchestra, is formed in Belgium: an ensemble that reinterprets the repertoire of musicians of all genres and backgrounds, recreating it with a real rainbow of sounds. Fascinated by the work of the Orchestra, who had invited her to collaborate in a series of concerts, Emiliana asked founders Aarich Jespers and Kobe Proesmans to reinterpret “Animal Games“. “The Colorist & Emiliana Torrini” (Rough Trade / Self, 2016) ) testifies to the success of the experiment: a live album that contains 9 songs from the catalog of Emiliana Torrini and two unreleased results of the encounter between two different realities but so well blended in the result.
