L'ORCHESTRE NOIR is a new initiative launched by Tony Wakeford of Sol Invictus as a vehicle for his interest in classical and sound-track composition. Besides Tony, participants include Eric Rogers, Nathalie Van Keymeulen and Céline Marleix-Bardeau (who played with him on In the Rain) and these are joined by Sally Doherty who contributes vocals to this mainly instrumental project. Under the name l'Orchestre Noir, he recorded two neoclassical albums "Cantos" and "Eleven". In 2006 Wakeford changed the name to Orchestra Noir. A third album "Ghosts" is scheduled for release in 2007.
