GAS at Barbican Centre

About

Wolfgang Voigt, born in 1961 in Cologne, Germany, is an artist, music producer, label owner and one of the co-founders of the Cologne-based electronica and techno label Kompakt. His project GAS, an intoxicatingly sinister work of sound art based on highly condensed classical sound sources, thrills a global audience far beyond the traditional electronica and techno music scenes since over 20 years. By combining abstract nature sounds with strings and brass alongside GAS's minimalist cover designs incorporating photographs he took in the forest, Voigt shows his strong affinity for Romanticism and portrays the forest as a mysterious or melancholic place. GAS fantasises about a sound body ranging somewhere between Schonberg and Kraftwerk, between bugle and bass drum. GAS is Wagner in the guise of glam rock, Hansel and Gretel on acid. An endless march through the undergrowth-into the disco-of an imaginary, misty forest. In 2017, GAS made its long-awaited return with the release of fifth full-length Narkopop. The album had a much more organic, almost orchestral sound than the project's prior, loop-based output. "Voigt's forest no longer merely murmurs; it positively exults." - The Wire General Information Guests with Mobility Impairments Guests who use a wheelchair or experience mobility impairments are asked to call the box office on 01273 678822 or email info@attenboroughcentre.com so that we can assist you to find the best seat to suit your requirements.
