A big thank you to Capellen Orchestra & Choir and Petr and Petra Pololanik for conducting three unforgettable days of recording Czech Republic’s finest musicians.
For this album Jo recorded an all-star ensemble of 14 brass players and a record-breaking 52-piece string section with 6 concertmasters in the first violins and three first chairs in all the other sections.

The soundtrack to the multi-award winning documentary “The Human Experience” has been released on iTunes. A wonderful film and beautiful soundtrack that will hopefully inspire many people out there. A proud moment for Jo of being given the opportunity to contribute a piece of music which is called “Below The Surface”.
Jo wrote the signature theme music for New Zealand’s internationally renowned and prestigious show event ” WOW – World of Wearable Art”. The music was recorded in Rudolfinum’s Dvorak Hall which is one of Europe’s oldest concert halls. WOW is happening every year in Wellington, New Zealand, so make sure you get a chance to witness world’s top designers battle it out:
It has been an extraordinary experience for Jo to be working with the “The Secret” team on their latest video and visualization tool called “Planet Earth Forever”. The creative process and the custom scoring process of the three minute video clip unfolded just magically. The beautiful “The Secret” team and the stunning visuals of the clip triggered his inspiration and he came up with a piece for solo piano and and strings. The goal was to convey the fragility, sensitivity and grace of our mother earth, to raise awareness, and to hopefully touch everyone who watches the clip from deep within. A piano only version of the clip’s music is featured on my new album called “The Feather Dance“.
