The Koop Oscar Orchestra is a new orchestra founded by Oscar Simonsson, former half of Swedish duo Koop.
After the second release Waltz for Koop, Swedish duo Koop quickly achieved cult underground status with their iconic tracks establishing a new sound for jazz. Consisting of Oscar Simonsson and Magnus Zingmark, the pair created innovative music rooted largely in jazz but also elements of hip-hop and dance.
10 years after the last release Koop Islands, Oscar Simonsson returns with the Koop Oscar Orchestra (KOO). The seven-piece group play the music originally written for Koop, reinterpreting iconic material from duo alongside new unreleased tracks. On stage the group reimagine Koop’s beautiful electronic landscapes - created through piecing together samples from thousands of records - through live instrumentation and hypnotic performance.
The Koop Oscar Orchestra tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Oct 2016.
