ENZSO was an orchestral project started by previous Split Enz keyboardist Eddie Rayner.
The project began with Eddie Rayner
, he wanted something more from the old Split Enz
songs, and doing orchestral arrangements seemed perfect. Creating the arrangements on his synthesiser, with help from Dave Woodcock
, Eddie approached Mark Keyworth
of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra
to ask whether the orchestra would play his arrangements, which he gladly agreed to.
With conductor Peter Scholes, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Dave Dobbyn, Annie Crummer, Sam Hunt, Neil Finn, Tim Finn and the National Youth Choir, they recorded and released their first album in 1996 simply titled ENZSO. Again in 1999 ENZSO recorded a second album titled ENZSO 2.
