About The Groove Symphonies
Usually, when musicians talk about mixing contemporary and classical music, they mean making an orchestral arrangement of a pop or rock song. Taking the forms of today and performing them with the instruments of the past.
With the Groove Symphonies, however, I am navigating that combination in the exact opposite direction. This series of high energy compositions takes the scope and concept of the classical symphony, and produces a large-scale, four-movement opus using the instruments of EDM, pop, funk and rock.
These beat-driven symphonies might never make it to Carnegie Hall – but they sound great on a long drive down the highway. Roll over, Beethoven, indeed.
