06 Aug Scrapheap Orchestra – BBC Four

The BBC Four show looks into the history of musical instruments whilst inspirational conductor Charles Hazlewood charges some of the UK’s top instrument makers with transforming junk, broken furniture and the contents of roadside skips into an orchestra of instruments.

Toby Jarvis created the music and sound arrangement for the 30 second spot to showcase this unique challenge that brought together some of the most celebrated musical talents and masterminds in the country.
The BBC Concert Orchestra put their reputations on the line by using these instruments to stage what they hoped would be a flawless performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture at the 2011 Proms.
