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

Created by composers Charlotte Harding and Lloyd Coleman, kraftwerk re:werk is an intoxicating mix of symphonic and electronic instruments, with ear-bending sounds sitting directly next to 70s beats, and sound on-stage amplified and filtered live, turning the orchestra into a giant synthesizer.

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.

The evening is kicked off with some seriously wild scores from Ligeti and Messiaen, to ensure that you are fully immersed and ready to hear the new work with fresh ears.
