Britten Sinfonia & The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble

Presented by Britten Sinfonia

Tickets from £16

Price includes a commission of £1.00

The 10-piece Moog Ensemble of Goldfrapp’s composer-keyboardist Will Gregory features illustrious names from the world of pop and classical music, including Adrian Utley of Portishead, Florence and the Machine’s Hazel Mills and composer Graham Fitkin – each bringing their distinctive musicianship to the retro-futurist world of fizzing, funky synths.

After a first half that focuses on synthy movie soundtracks and the legacy of 60s Moog pioneer Wendy Carlos, Will Gregory’s Archimedes Suite celebrates the ancient Greek genius in a heady mix of orchestral colour, electronica and – with the help of stand-up mathematician Matt Parker - graspable maths.
