The Art Of Moog – ‘Switched On Bach’ Live

Art of Moog shared this video, documenting the recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations Aria with a Moog System 55.

Art of Moog is a new group that performs Bach, live on synthesizers, taking inspiration from the classic Switched On Bach recordings of electronic music pioneer Wendy Carlos. The group’s official debut took place in London, in April 2018, as part of the 2018 Bach Weekend at Kings Place, London, UK.

The group says that “Art of Moog is all about genuine live performance, by UK players who are also harpsichordists and historically-informed specialists, steeped in baroque tradition.”

Here’s a playlist of their videos:

  1. Fantastic performances, and a well deserved tribute to Wendy Carlos, one of the greatest synth musicians of all time, who set the bar high for everyone who followed.
