Emika’s very first symphony orchestra piece ‘Melanfonie’, features soprano Michaela Šrumová and The Prague Metropolitan Orchestra. This recording was paid for purely by Emika’s fans via her Kickstarter campaign ‘How To Make A Symphony’. Emika has reworked the original recordings to present key moments in the piece called ‘Momente’. Here we discover the essence of the music as a way in to her new orchestral sound world before she reveals the full symphony. A reinvention of the standard one track single, there are six different ‘Momente’, each accompanied by a highly stylized video series by her long-time visuals collaborator Tving. This is Emika’s vision of the future of classical and her desires to alter the traditional images associated with classical musicians. There are no tuxedos in this project. Just highly talented musicians, real people, with a sixty piece orchestra and Emika’s production team, this is the sound of eighty peoples souls.
