Serj Tankian Releases "Elect The Dead" Orchestra Dvd
On Monday, March 16, 2009 at the Auckland Town Hall I will be collaborating with Auckland's most loved orchestra. I will be playing songs from Elect The Dead and some unreleased extras. All the songs will be reinterpreted to fit with the orchestra, as the F.C.C. will not be playing this show with me. It's just the orchestra and I; the arrangements for the orchestra were made by respected New Zealand composer John Psathas. I'm elated to have the opportunity to arrange my songs from Elect the Dead for a full orchestra with the APO. The arrangements will be quite different than those on the record including bonus tracks never played live, and John Psathas will be helping me outfit my string arrangements for the full orchestra. We'll also be taping the performance for a worldwide DVD release later in the year.
