As Detroit DJ, Jeff Mills, prepares to deliver the Irish debut of “Light from the Outside World”, a special collaborative performance with the RTE Concert Orchestra at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on October 30, our man Will Kinsella – who is also involved in making the show happen – talks with the American composer about the fascinating process of combining electronic and classical music.
Light from the Outside World has been a phenomenal success. How has that experience been for you personally?
It’s been wonderful. All shows have been full and very well received. Not just by people from Electronic Music, but from listeners of Classical. I think what is most unique is that the mixing two genres together in this way creates something new.
How does a collaborative process with an orchestra work? What challenges did you face?
