Art of Moog

In 1968, Wendy Carlos introduced an entirely new concept to the world: Bach performed on an analogue synthesiser. The complexity of the sound, and the inherent coolness of the instrument, brought an entirely new audience to the music of Bach. At the same time iconoclastic and devotional, Switched-On Bach changed the way Bach was seen forever. For the first time here in this performance, his music can be heard played completely live on multiple Moog synthesisers by a group of keyboard virtuosos.
