      Derrick May and the Orchestra

      Line-up /

      Derrick May

      The Detroit-born founding father of techno leads an 80-piece orchestra in interpretations of his pioneering works of electronic music.

      The orchestra plays classics from Derrick May’s seminal recordings, including Rhythim is Rhythim and Mayday, which remain iconic three decades later.

      Derrick May met Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson as a teenager. Inspired by European electronic sounds, black American dance music and the idiosyncratic broadcaster The Electrifying Mojo, the trio began to DJ together under the name Deep Space Soundworks in the early 1980s, creating the Detroit techno sound.

      In 2013, producer Ognen Uzunovski asked Macedonian musician Dzijan Emin to reinterpret Derrick May’s catalogue for the Symphony Orchestra, and the orchestral project was born.

      Cost: 30.00 to 50.00
