Jeff Mills has collaborated with symphonic orchestras since many years and was the first DJ to perform and capture it on DVD for a wider audience.
It all began with the Montpellier National Orchestra, directed by Alain Altinoglu, in 2005 at Le Pont du Gard, France. The piece was called “Blue Potential” and had been arranged for orchestra by the young French composer Thomas Roussel.
In September 2012, Jeff Mills played a new version of this orchestral project, now called “Light from the Outside World”, to a sold-out Salle Pleyel in Paris with L’Orchestre National d’Ile de France, conducted by Christophe Mangou.
“Light from the Outside World” includes Mills’ classics as “The Bells” or “Sonic Destroyer” adapted by Roussel. “Light from the Outside World” was also performed at Casa da Musica in Porto, OdeGand Festival in Belgium, Melbourne Festival. Several concerts are scheduled over the world in the following years.
Light From The Outside World explores the major force that lies within our nearest Sun. Constant pulses of energy that gives us our physical and spiritual life so that we may go onto radiate within the expanding spiral of Human evolution.
The nucleus that speaks a universal language, gives us the opportunity to begin again with each and every revolution of Earth. This esoteric force is the original source of truth. Because we are ceaseless in our ambition when we consider Tomorrow, we deeply invest our faith in the force that drives the souls of all living things to dawn of their inevitable fate.
