Electronica vs. Orchestra
Following the record breaking Flight Facilities and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra collaboration at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in October, music worlds collide again when legendary Detroit techno producers and DJs Jeff Mills and Derrick May perform together for the first time with the MSO in January 2016.
Detroit has created many musical legends, from Aaliyah to Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder. Jeff Mills and Derrick May are two of the pioneers of the techno scene, which was born in Detroit and then exported across the globe.
Mills turned to classical instrumentation to feature alongside his other sonic forces to push the boundaries of techno – but this is the first time he’ll share the same orchestra with rival Derrick May. This is an exclusive opportunity for Melbourne audiences to experience the giants from the world of techno in rare collaboration, with top flight musicians. It’s going to redefine the live music experience.
