New LP The Orb & Dave Gilmour - Metallic Spheres

The orb featuring David Gilmour’s Metallic Spheres is to be performed live at Café Mambo, for its European album launch. Release 11.10.2010

This inaugural event in Ibiza, titled “The Ambient Spheres Gala”, will kick off a three-city world-wide tour with a resounding bang. To celebrate the European launch of the album, the event is being held at Cafe Mambo, San Antonio at sunset on the shores of Ibiza on September 24th complete with a live set by The Orb performing Metallic Spheres in its entirety. The album's performance will be followed by an Alex Paterson DJ set.

Metallic Spheres is designed to be heard in two parts - ‘Metallic Side' (24'48”), and ‘Spheres Side' (25'09”). Each track, or side, consists of five movements. The album uniquely utilizes David Gilmour's discernable electric guitar and lap steel guitar, Alex Paterson's sound manipulation, keyboards and turntables, and Youth's bass guitar and keyboards. The album will be available in 3 formats: standard and 2-disc deluxe versions on CD, digital download and 180-gram vinyl. The deluxe 2-CD version includes an extra disc, featuring the new ‘3D60™' process, which allows a 360-degree sound experience on stereo tracks without any special equipment.

The Orb's Alex Paterson says, “"It's a collision that's been waiting to happen with Pink Floyd / David Gilmour and The Orb orbiting many of the same planets".

The Orb, built around mainstay Alex Paterson, formed in London in 1989 during the birth of the rave movement. Initially founded on a mutual love of Brian Eno and German electronics, The Orb at present operates with a flexible line-up of collaborators that includes producer / multi-instrumentalist Youth, well-known for his work with Paul McCartney as The Fireman, as well as his production (Crowded House, Dido) and remixes (U2, Marilyn Manson).

David Gilmour is the legendary singer, guitarist and songwriter with Pink Floyd, whose most recent solo album ‘On An Island' charted at No. 1 in the UK & Europe and No.6 in the USA. And whose relationship with Ibiza goes back to the movie More directed by Barbet Schroeder, released in 1969. It features a soundtrack written and performed by Pink Floyd, released as the album Soundtrack from the Film More.
