Art of Moog: BACH1pm
Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham
Art of Moog plays the music of J S Bach on cutting edge analogue and digital synthesizers, with some unashamed electronica overtones.
The band, formed by harpsichord and synth player Robin Bigwood with fellow classically-trained musicians Steven Devine, Annabel Knight and Martin Perkins, made its debut in the 2018 Bach Weekend at Kings Place, London. Art of Moog swaps old instruments for an array of Moogs, Nords, Rolands, vocoders, guitar pedals and an Akai wind-synth, to create scintillating soundscapes and atmospheres undreamt of 300 years ago.
