The Glass Orchestra

The Glass Orchestra

The Glass Orchestra

The Glass Orchestra has been played on NTS in shows including Adam Oko, featured first on 4 June 2017. Songs played include Understanding Media.

The Glass Orchestra, founded in 1977, is unique in the world: it is the only ensemble of musicians performing and creating contemporary compositions entirely with glass musical instruments of their own design. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences and performance techniques, the orchestra explores the unique sonic properties of glass, creating an ethereal, percussive soundscape of associated imagery by playing a large assortment of glass bowls, goblets, tubes, xylophones, bells, chimes and one of a kind instruments.
