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."
