Art of Moog

Art of Moog performs Bach, live, on synthesizers.

Live showreel:

‘The Lab Sessions 2019’ – Prelude in E minor:

In the studio (with the Moog System 55 modular synthesizer):


Bach on synths has been done before – Wendy Carlos’s much-loved Switched-on Bach notched up its 50th anniversary in 2018.

But Art of Moog is different. Looking more like a Kraftwerk gig than a classical concert, and with boundary-crossing audience appeal, the band is made up of some of the UK’s best harpsichordists and baroque specialists.

This is synth-Bach with completely new levels of insight.

‘It was a delightful hour spent revisiting the past… This re-creation of pioneering work – in spite of the attention to detail paid to Bach’s ornamentation informed by post-Carlos discoveries of performance practice – invited a lighthearted, joyous reaction.’
MusicOMH 4.5* full review

‘Three distinguished early-music harpsichord players gathered around a collection of keyboards, synthesisers, vocoders and other complicated looking little boxes, together with [an] equally distinguished recorder player, who clipped an EWI5000 (an Electronic Wind Instrument) onto a lanyard around her neck. This was not going to be a ‘normal’ period instrument early music event…’
