As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, Will Gregory is passionate about creating new sounds and reinventing old ones. Here, a stellar line-up stretches the possibilities of the Moog synthesiser through newly composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film.
Marvel at 10 musicians on stage, including Portishead’s Adrian Utley and composer Graham Fitkin, performing works by Bach, John Carpenter, and extracts from A Clockwork Orange on a fascinating array of vintage instruments.
‘Gig goers were wowed by one hell of a thrillingly unique experience when the Moog Ensemble rolled into Bristol. Will Gregory and his ensemble epitomised the scope of the instrument’s cosmic musical reach, dazzling us with an eclectic, often giddying musical showcase. It’s beautiful and bizarre, terrifying and hypnotic, avant garde and contemporary, subterranean and ethereal, astonishing and totally enthralling.’
