A three-day series at the Barbican marking ten years since the death of Dr Robert Moog, inventor of the classic modular synthesizer that kickstarted electronic music in the ’60s. It all starts on Wednesday night with sets by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory and his Moog Ensemble, performing everything from Bach to Burt Bacharach, and contemporary composer Charlemagne Palestine premiering a new piece. Thursday’s headliners are cult New York synth-punk duo Suicide with a show called ‘A Punk Mass’, featuring new material and fan favourites. Finally, on Friday, there’s a performance by one of the Moog’s most famous exponents: prog keyboard wizard Keith Emerson, teaming up with the BBC Concert Orchestra to perform his typically bombastic ‘Three Fates Project’. Book early, and make sure you know how to pronounce that name: it rhymes with ‘vogue’, not ‘fugue’.Read more
