_REMIX commission composers, performers, writers and artists to reimagine historic music. _REMIX nights are ‘unusual and incredibly special’ - London in Stereo. We have presented nights in partnership with the V&A, Royal Academy of Arts, Dulwich Picture Gallery, the National Trust, Ikon Gallery, and more. BBC 6 Music described _REMIX as 'a space where classical music can be enjoyed in a relaxed environment'.
Synth Remix at the V&A
Following 2018’s sell-out performances for our Synth Remix tour, we’re excited to present Jo Thomas’ extraordinary synth performance Nature’s Numbers as part of a special Friday Late at the V&A Museum in London. Based on the archival documents of synth pioneer, Delia Derbyshire, Nature’s Numbers sees Jo perform on a range of experimental instruments.
Sonic Boom at the V&A will take place on Friday, February 22nd, 630-10pm. Entry is FREE.
After Violence at the Royal Academy of Arts
For the Royal Academy of Arts’ Late event, Transcendence, _REMIX will present a reworking of their unique, baroque drag performance, After Violence. Performed against the backdrop of the RA’s extraordinary collection of renaissance paintings and sculptures, After Violence will combine baroque music, synths, lute and drag to explore queer love, life and death in the work of Michelangelo.
Alongside After Violence, _REMIX will present experimental, surround-sound synth performances to transform the Royal Academy of Arts’ renaissance galleries into a unique, immersive, musical experience.
Transcendence will take place on Saturday, 30th March, 7-1145pm.
Mozart Synth Opera
For the Gunnersbury Park Museum’s inaugural Late event in June 2019, REMIX will present a new reimagining of Mozart’s most loved operatic arias. Recomposed for synthesisers and live vocalists, our Mozart synth opera will be an opera like no other.
Performed in the opulent surroundings of the Gunnersbury Park Museum’s Rothschild rooms, our Mozart Synth Opera will feature new text by award-winning poet and playwright Jacqueline Saphra, with direction by Gareth Mattey.
Full cast and details will be announced soon. The performance will take place on Friday, 7th June, 7-10pm.
