Robin Bigwood

Barber Lunchtime Concert

Art of Moog plays the music of J S Bach on cutting edge analogue and digital synthesizers, with some unashamed electronica overtones.

The band, formed by harpsichord and synth player Robin Bigwood with fellow classically-trained musicians Steven Devine, Annabel Knight and Martin Perkins, made its debut in the 2018 Bach Weekend at Kings Place, London. Art of Moog swaps old instruments for an array of Moogs, Nords, Rolands, vocoders, guitar pedals and an Akai wind-synth, to create cintillating soundscapes and atmospheres undreamt of 300 years ago.

New arrangements and reworkings of The Well-Tempered Clavier and ‘Goldberg’ variations
J S Bach Selections from the Easter Oratorio and Cantata 140 ‘Wachet auf’
J S Bach Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring, BWV147
