Direct Line: Sleeping Gig
November 2013 saw Urban Soul Orchestra collaborate with Direct Line to create a unique and never before experienced event in the UK; a Sleeping Gig.
Our Musical Director Stephen Hussey collaborated with Direct Line and psychologist Dr Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, undertaking research as to the causal link between relaxation, sleep and music in our fast-paced lives.
Urban Soul Orchestra performed a series of sets at Wilton’s Music Hall replete with red chaise longues upon which work-tired members of the public were invited to relax, and allow the beautiful music to soothe them.
Direct Line commissioned Urban Soul Orchestra to arrange a song specifically requested for the event through their Facebook page; Gotye’s Somebody That I Used to Know.
Our musicians performed our bespoke set three times throughout the day; and you can see more here.
