Electronic classics / Classic electronics.

This event takes place in the British Library Theatre.

As one-half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, Will Gregory and his stellar line-up stretch the possibilities of the analogue synthesiser through newly-composed music and reinventions of classical works.

For their long awaited return to live performance, The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble perform at the British Library in a special show to 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.

Doors open 19.30. Band on stage 20.30.

Please note this is a standing event with very limited seating areas.

The Beethoven exhibition will be open on the night at no extra cost. Last entry 21.30. Access subject to gallery capacity.

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. 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.
