CARL CRAIG Synthesizer Ensemble - MELBOURNE
8:00PM - 9:30PM
Melbourne recital centre
World-renowned, Grammy-nominated artist Carl Craig brings his world acclaimed Synthesizer Ensemble to Australia. Detroit’s Craig remains a central figure in music’s contemporary catalogue, and runs the 26-year-old label Planet E – on which he released his Versus album in April this year. The Synthesizer Ensemble delivers a symphonic adaptation of Craig’s techno catalogue, utilising an array of keyboards and synthesizers.
A creative entrepreneur and world-renowned icon, Craig remains ahead of his league, continually challenging electronic music’s future through unrivalled productions and collaborations. First premiering in Paris in 2008, Craig joined with the Les Siècles orchestra (conducted by François-Xavier Roth), multi-instrumentalist techno mastermind Moritz von Oswald, and Francesco Tristano, who arranged and orchestrated his tracks for a symphonic live performance. The original filmed recording of the show has more than 1 million views, acclaim from BBC Radio’s Gilles Peterson and has spawned a full-length album, Versus – released via Craig’s legendary Detroit imprint Planet E and InFiné. A unique combination of electronic and classical composition, Versus is a progressive eight-track collection of techno adapted for orchestra.
