Hidden Orchestra is a musical collective based in Edinburgh, led by multi-instrumentalist composer/producer Joe Acheson, whose albums and live shows feature a wide variety of guest musicians from all kinds of musical backgrounds. The group was previously known as the Joe Acheson Quartet.
Hidden Orchestra's debut album Night Walks was released in September 2010 and featured a fusion of IDM, World music, Electronica, Reggae, Dub, Post-Rock, hip-hop, DnB and jazz. Guest musicians, improvising, natural sounds and contrasts combined with electronic effects are supposed to make the music emotional and energetic.
The album succeeded all over Europe. It got the "Album of the Month" at BBC Radio 1 and was listed at the iDJ´s top albums of 2010. In January 2011 a vinyl deluxe version called "Night Walks on Vinyl" was published on the German label Denovali.
Hidden Orchestra was added by Radio Scotland to the A-Z of the greatest Scottish jazz artists of all time.
In November 2010 they played in the UK and in March and April 2011 a European tour followed. They played headline gigs and supported a couple of other artists in 12 countries.
