Fifty years on from Wendy Carlos’ iconic album Switched on Bach, Art of Moog plays the music of J S Bach on cutting edge analogue and digital synthesizers, along with some unashamed electronica overtones. Formed by harpsichord and synth player Robin Bigwood with fellow musicians Steven Devine, Annabel Knight and Martin Perkins, Art of Moog made its debut in the 2018 Bach Weekend at Kings Place in London. In their day jobs they play with some of the UK and Europe’s leading orchestras and ensembles, have made award-winning solo recordings, and, amongst much else, recorded soundtracks for Harry Potter and Wes Anderson movies. In Art of Moog they swap 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. They’ve played in a whole range of city and summer festivals, to audiences of classical specialists and electronica aficionados alike, to great critical acclaim.
