The Third Orchestra In Action

Roland Denning’s film explores the process and performance of the Third Orchestra’s first week of activity at the Barbican, with short interviews with Peter Wiegold and some of the artists taking part, and tracing the evolution of one of the pieces – The Poisonous Fire (crack it open) – growing from a groove explored by Peter and bassist/composer Shri in Peter’s studio, through orchestra rehearsals and finally performing to a packed house in the Pit.

There are also glimpses of other pieces from the final peformance, ‘O Black Orpheus’,  Love Far Away (Adio Querida) and Home/ 毓贞 Yu Zhen
