The performance was debuted live on Boiler Room and showcases a 50-piece classical symphonic orchestra, with the electronic arsenal of August and Nagel, in a full 50-minute symphony.
The concept was initiated by Frieder Nagel, who connected August to Deutsches Symphonie Orchester in early 2015. Over the following year, the German artist composed a symphony that seeks to combine traditional and electronic instruments and production at the same time.
