Floex with Hidden Orchestra

Floex will perform live at the London Scala with an electronic jazz collective from Edinburgh Hidden Orchestra. Floex was founded by Tomas Dvorak, a clarinetist, composer, producer and multimedia artist from Prague whose music is characterized by unique exploration of electroacoustic nexus and deep atmospheric mood of his tracks. He continuously widens his musical focus by experimenting in the interactive multimedia field. Part of London Jazz Festival.

Tomáš Dvořák (*78) aka Floex
He has been learning clarinet from childhood which later becomes the key instrument for his music - not only as “instrumental signature” but also as way of his compositional approach. In 1996 Tomáš started to compose under his project name "Floex". His debut album Pocustone (2001) bridges relatively isolated genres such as nu-jazz, electronic and modern contemporary music. The album was highly critically acclaimed not only in the Czech Republic and gained several awards (Angel Award 2001 and Nomination to Europian Qwartz Awards).

He is well known for his cooperation with Amanita Design on the soundtracks for the games Samorost 2 (2006) and Machinarium (2009). Machinarium OST gained massive reaction by both fans and critics and was selected as the best 2009 soundtrack according world’s number game magazine - PC Gamer. Ten years after the debut in 2011 Floex releases new album Zorya. Probably most profound album up to date is going further in exploration of acoustic music (especially classical minimalism), soundtrack music and
contemporary electronic music.
At the moment Floex is performing live with his band - Sára Vondrášková - vocals and keyboards, Tomáš Dvořák - electronics, clarinet and midiclarinet, Jirka Javůrek - clarinet, midiclarinet and bas clarinet, Marián Petržela - drums!
