In 1968, Wendy Carlos introduced an entirely new concept to the world: Bach performed on an analogue synthesiser. The complexity of the sound, and the inherent coolness of the instrument, brought an entirely new audience to the music of Bach. At the same time iconoclastic and devotional, Switched-On Bach changed the way Bach was seen forever.
A rare chance to hear Bach’s music played completely live on multiple synthesisers.
I will be joining the group playing an Akai EWI 5000 - a wind synthesizer.
