The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble first performed together in 2005 as part of the Bath Festival, recreating some of the 'Switched on Bach' arrangements of Wendy Carlos. The ensemble have a live performance coming up at the end of April featuring newly-composed music and reinventions of classical works. This special show will accompany the Library's exhibition Beethoven: Idealist. Innovator. Icon and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Wendy Carlos's remarkable score for A Clockwork Orange. Here's more:
As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, the keyboard-player and composer Will Gregory is one of the UK's leading advocates of using synthesizers and electronic instruments to create new sounds and reinvent old ones. The band perform a mixture of specially-composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film scores. The band have gone on to play concerts and electronic music festivals throughout the UK and Europe.
They appeared with Human League's Martyn Ware at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg in 2018, played at the Philharmonie de Paris for the Days Off festival in July 2019 and were guest artists for the BBC Concert Orchestra's concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing at the BBC Proms 2019. They have made several broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, including an enjoyably spooky one from the Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station.
The show is on Sat 23 Apr 2022, 19:30 - 22:45 and you can book your tickets here: https://www.bl.uk/events/late-at-the-library-the-will-gregory-moog-ensemble#
