The USO chill out music set is a unique blend of live strings with a professionally produced soundtrack, creating a lusciously rich soundscape of chillout music for a myriad of events. The USO chill-out set creates a relaxed vibe for informal drinks receptions, or as unobtrusive background music for business networking events. Equally, our chill-out set can gently build in tempo throughout the set if required, gradually encouraging conference delegates or wedding guests from their seats and onto the dance floor.
Our chill out music has its roots in clubland chill out lounge music, taken to a new height by the use of a live string ensemble playing traditional classical instruments (or electric violins). The result is beautiful, sophisticated and contemporary.
The USO Chill Out Set is available in a configuration of 4, 8 or 12 players, depending on your budget and staging requirements. The chill-out set can also be performed by a trio or even solo violinist, providing music for very special occasions such as intimate gatherings and charity events. This unique "Buddha Bar" type background music entertainment can also be performed exclusively by female (or male) players, stylishly clothed in chill out white, appropriate for wedding drinks reception music, art gallery openings or black and white theme parties alike. The USO Chill Out Set can be booked alone or combined with the USO Acoustic Ensemble, USO DJ Set or USO Big Band.
Our specially arranged pieces played in the Chill Out Set below include "Edge Hill" by Groove Armada (for which we originally arranged/performed the strings), our funky drum and bass version of the Oasis classic, "Wonderwall", Ennio Morricone's beautiful "Chi Mai" and the theme music from "The Matrix".
