We are a loose collection of people passionate about designing and making our own unique musical instruments to play and record. We put open distribution and community at the heart of the orchestra and we use this to grow, raise awareness and expose the benefits of an Open Band approach.
The musical releases of the Goblin Orchestra are based around a series of projects called sessions .
For each session we collaborate on creating a set of musical instruments, defining a sound, a style and a theme and get to writing songs and learning covers. We document the process and release work files, instrument plans and audio files to the community to remix, rewrite or generally do what they want with.
We usually conclude each session with the release of a bunch of merchandise, special edition recordings and a short tour. Then it’s on to the next session.
One instrument build. Another being designed. Branding being developed.
