Art of Moog: Bach Preludes & Moogs

And now for something completely different at the Pinner Music Festival: JS Bach played on Moog synthesizers. These four baroque specialists comprise – with technology – Art of Moog, in a varied, inventive and respectful recital, giving the great composer’s music a fresh perspective, swapping harpsichord, organ, recorder and flute for cutting edge synthesizers, samplers & vocoder. Bach himself always explored the technical boundaries of keyboard instruments of his time – so he would surely have approved.

As well as keyboards, Art of Moog features the amazing EWI – electronic wind instrument, with a range of seven octaves and even more sound qualities. You may remember the classic LP of 1968 by Wendy Carlos Switched on Bach using Moog; this ensemble will take that concept even further. They include a wide range of Bach’s compositions: Preludes, Arias, Canons, Chorales, and ‘the’ Toccata & Fugue (BWV 565).
