OGBE (Orchestra of Electric Guitars and Basses) is an orchestra composed of 10 Electric Guitars, 6 Electric Basses and 2 Drum Kits.
The main feature of this orchestra is that the direction is improvised, so each show is a unique moment. The parts are composed from fragments that have been created since January 2009 resulting from the crossing of different musical languages and resource exploitation of the unusual timbre of having dozens of amplified guitars on stage.
