Here’s a review of a special Moog Ensemble gig.
An amazing experience for me personally as I was given license by Kubrick’s estate to re-sequence Clockwork Orange, The Shining and 2001 to a medley of compositions the films – played live by the Moog Ensemble to celebrate the opening of the Kubrick Exhibition in Copenhagen.
Expect humour and eclectic repertoire as we bring together a multitude of Moogs with ‘the nation’s ukulele orchestra’ _ in an unprecedented double-bill. The synth-pop of Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory joins extracts from Wendy Carlos’ _Clockwork Orange soundtrack and her ground-breaking Switched-On Bach album, followed by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain: a group who believe that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation – as long as they are played on the ukulele. Expect anything from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana, via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks, before the Ukes and Moogs team up at the end for something new, surprising and delightful.
