ELECTRONIC god and scary-faced dream-haunter Aphex Twin is to conduct a 28-piece string section and a 12-strong choir – by remote control.
At a special performance at The Barbican in London, the musician is set to team up with The Heritage Orchestra and Choir for the rare performance of his remote conducting stunt.
A venue spokesman said: “We are excited to announce a one-off evening of music from the most influential electronic musician of his generation.
“The show will include the first UK performance of Aphex Twin’s groundbreaking Remote Orchestra concept, plus ‘Interactive Tuned Feedback Pendulum Array’ – a piece which expands on Steve Reich’s ‘Pendulum Music’ – and more.”
