Britten Sinfonia and The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble

The Will Gregory Moog Ensemble performing in a church

Experience a unique concert that brings together Maths and Music, Synths and Soundtracks, with composer and keyboardist Will Gregory – one half of electropop duo Goldfrapp.

Will Gregory's 10-piece Moog Ensemble 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.

The concert’s first half focuses on synthy, sci-fi movie soundtracks and simultaneously pays tribute to electronic music’s two great female pioneers: the BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s Delia Derbyshire and Wendy Carlos, creator of Moog-overdubbed Bach arrangements and the score for Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. We hear the London premiere of Will Gregory’s suite for synths and orchestra, featuring one of the world’s great popularisers of Maths, Matt Parker, presenting his trademark mix of stand-up comedy and maths demystification.

This performance will finish at approximately 9.30pm, including a 20-minute interval
