ART OF MOOG 

21st Century Hyper-Bach on synthesizers

 

8.15pm The Astor Theatre, Deal

Wendy Carlos’s much-loved Switched-on Bach notched up its 50th anniversary in 2018.  While Art of Moog celebrates this musical phenomenon, it is different. Looking more like a Kraftwerk gig than a classical concert, and with boundary-crossing audience appeal, the band is made up of some of the UK’s best harpsichordists and baroque specialists. This is synth-Bach with completely new levels of insight.

 

Ticket Prices: Premium £24.00 Full £20.00 (Friends of DMA Premium £22.00 Full £18.00) Students half price
