kraftwerk re:werk is a ground breaking musical experience, taking Kraftwerk’s iconic album Trans-Europe Express as the starting point for a thrilling symphonic trip.

Created by composers Charlotte Harding and Lloyd Coleman, and premiered at Colston Hall as part of Simple Things Festival 2017, kraftwerk re:werk is an intoxicating mix of symphonic and electronic instruments, with ear-bending sounds sitting directly next to 70s beats. Each and every sound on-stage is amplified and filtered live, turning the orchestra into a giant synthesizer.

Conducted by the award-winning Charles Hazlewood and performed by the Paraorchestra & Friends, the 39-piece ensemble contains a bank of Moogs, drum machines and live percussion, assistive technology, alongside bass oboes, an electro harp and a suite of orchestral strings and brass.

Bringing the orchestra to the unorthodox environment of the Marble Factory – a live music and club venue transformed from a former skate park – prior to kraftwerk re:werk you’ll also experience some seriously wild scores from three twentieth century icons, Schnittke, Ligeti and Messiaen.

To kick off the whole evening of intoxicating music, Max Cooper will present a live AV set that will take you on an incredible filmic journey. Linking his interest in science, music and visual arts, Cooper’s mesmerising collection of ideas and audio-visual experiments form a kaleidoscopic immersive sound experience.

This event launches Bristol as the first official Fair Saturday city in England. Fair Saturday is a global movement bringing together arts, culture and social causes on the day after Black Friday.

“the arrangements are bold: the melody from Trans-Europe Express rings out of a dizzy whirl of sound, while Autobahn’s smooth pootle is chaotically recast as Mad Max’s morning commute.” (The Guardian)
