Pharrell Williams Records With Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra

The Neptunes producer records with an all-student orchestra.

University of Miami Frost School of Music has announced that Pharrell Williams recorded with the Frost School's Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra this Fall.

Pharrell recorded a new work with the all-student orchestra entitled "I Am Other."

Theneptunes.org reports that Williams hired the orchestra upon the recommendation of legendary producer Quincy Jones.

Says the website: "Williams composed the mixed-genre orchestral work—which features soft and ethereal atmospheres contrasted with fortissimo brass themes and driving rhythms—to explore a different side of his musical creativity, and to encourage his hip-hop fan base to expand their musical horizons."
