The Cinematic Orchestra is a UK-based jazz and electronic outfit, created in 1999 by Jason Swinscoe, which records on theNinja Tune independent record label.

Other members include Tom Chant (saxophone), Phil France (double bass), Luke Flowers (drums), Nick Ramm (piano), StuartMcCallum (guitar); former members include Jamie Coleman (trumpet), T. Daniel Howard (drums), Alex James (piano), andPatrick “PC” Carpenter (turntables).

In both live and studio context, The Cinematic Orchestra employ a live band which improvises along with a turntablist andelectronic elements such as samples provided by Swinscoe. In their studio releases Swinscoe will often remix the live sourcematerial to produce a finished product that is a seamless combination of live jazz improvisation with electronics, such that itis difficult to tell where the improvisation ends and the production begins. It is worth mentioning that in the sound of theCinematic Orchestra the role of traditional solo instruments, such as piano or wind instruments, is not the same as intraditional jazz; instead of performing intricate solos they provide a mature accompaniment environment and quite often thereis more space for the drums and the double bass to have a lead role.

The Cinematic Orchestra have been noted for their new score to the classic 1929 Dziga Vertov’s Ukrainian film Man with aMovie Camera. They have worked on two other scores: they recorded some tracks for Ils se marièrent et eurent beaucoupd’enfants (2004) and made the music for the Disney Nature movie The Crimson Wing (2009).

The Cinematic Orchestra released their latest album Ma Fleur on 7th May 2007. The album features vocals from PatrickWatson, Fontella Bass and Lou Rhodes. In 2010 their compilation Late Night Tales followed.

They have started their own record label: Motion Audio Records. One record has been released by Lou Rhodes. More releaseswill follow, including Grey Reverend. « hide
