Jeff Mills + symphonic orchestra

According to 313tm, on July 2nd, Jeff Mills will play live with the National Orchestra of Montpellier.

Honestly, I have no idea of how that performance can actually sound. I can imagine a classical orchestra playing "smells like teen spirit", but I can't imagine it playing "the bells" or "changes of life". It is analog vs. digital, or pattern-based vs. organic music. I am intrigued... The concert will be filmed in a DVD, available in November.

What's next? Autechre with Compay Segundo? Why not? Electronic music has always been very promiscuous.
