The Cinematic Orchestra

The Cinematic Orchestra is a British Nu Jazz and Downtempo music group, created in 1999 by Jason Swinscoe. Swinscoe got prior attention due to his fascination with the art of "sampling". The group is signed to independent record label Ninja Tune. The groups sound, in both live and studio contexts, employs a live band which improvises along with a turntablist and electronic elements such as samples provided by Swinscoe. In their studio releases Swinscoe will often remix the live source material to produce a combination of live jazz improvisation with electronica, such that it is difficult to tell where the improvisation ends and the production begins.
