Tonight Supersonic Festival 2015 kicks off at the legendary Birmingham Town Hall, with a performance by Will Gregory Moog Ensemble. As one half of the electronic music sensation Goldfrapp, producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Will Gregory is passionate about creating new sounds and reinventing old ones. Here a stellar line-up stretches the possibilities of the Moog synthesiser through newly composed music, transcriptions of classical works, and their own versions of music from popular culture and film. Marvel at ten musicians on stage, including Portishead’s Adrian Utley and composer Graham Fitkin.
Will did a great piece in the Guardian explaining his love of the MOOG
‘Im in the Moog’
Opening the show are Fains, a new improvised project by Nick Jonah Davis on electric guitar and Johanna Cormack on violin creating sonic landscapes and new musical textures.
