Jamie Jones and Kate Simko's new project is "where electronic meets symphony"

On November 27, London’s Barbican will be graced by the brainchild of classically trained composer, producer and DJ Kate Simko, and house producer and DJ Jamie Jones.

The project, Opus 1, is a 25-piece expansion of the London Electronic Orchestra and will be led by conductor Robert Ames. Alongside Jones and Simko, they will perform a full concert of original music including recomposed tracks by Jones, as well as the pair’s collaborations with the orchestra.

The duo have been working together intermittently since 2015 and have co-produced tracks with the likes of Katy B.

Speaking on the project, Simko said: "We are very excited to debut the show at the Barbican because the sound is amazing and there's so much history at the venue. It’s an honour to perform with my ensemble London Electronic Orchestra in the London Symphony’s home hall, and an incredible opportunity for Jamie and I to share this new hybrid sound we've been working on behind the scenes."
