The Cinematic Orchestra

J Swinscoe, the founder of The Cinematic Orchestra, began his musical journey in 1990 with a group called Crabladder. After releasing a single on his own label, Power Tool, he gained recognition as a DJ on Heart FM. In 1999, their debut album Motion garnered critical acclaim and led to an invitation to perform at the Director's Guild Awards ceremony for Stanley Kubrick. They were later commissioned to create a live score for Man with a Movie Camera and released it as an album. Their discography also includes Ma Fleur and the soundtrack for The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos. In 2010, they established their independent label Motion Audio.
