Steve Nash & Turntable Orchestra

Steve Nash & Turntable Orchestra is an innovative musical project aiming at connecting two entirely different musical worlds - classical music and turntablism, using the sounds of orchestra, grand piano and turntables operated by 9 DJ’s. The soundscape will comprise an electronic music compilation based on mixed audio material. The entirety of the project will focus on sounds typical for classical music but engineered with tools characteristic for the contemporary styles, mainly electronic music and jazz. The natural grand piano sounds will be interlaced with the scratched parts generated by the turntables that are playing the solo parts. The project
comprises 9 Polish Djs - the masters of turntables: DJ Haem, DJ Ben, DJ Krótki, DJ Falcon1, DJ Funktion, DJ Chmielix, DJ VaZee, Dj PAC1, DJ Stosunkowodobry. The mastermind behind the entire project - Steve Nash will be responsible for the grand piano part, drum pads, synthesizers and midi controllers.

Although Steve’s musical adventure began with the classic sounds of the grand piano, this instrument quickly became the inspiration and the starting point for his further musical search: composition, production and DJ’ing.
