The University of Miami Frost School of Music recently announced that Pharrell Williams made a record with the Frost School’s Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra this past fall entitled “I Am Other.”

Pharrell’s official website reported that Williams hired the all-student orchestra after the legendary producer Quincy Jones made the recommendation.

The website states, “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.”
