Baroque Remix is a new classical club night with Baroque DJs and live performances combining baroque, hip hop, and contemporary classical music. The night will be hosted by experimental arts venue, IKLECTIK, in Lambeth / Waterloo.
Live remixes of baroque music (by Benjamin Tassie) will combine drum loops, hip hop and R&B samples, to reimagine the baroque dance parties of the 17th and 18th centuries. Sampling Lauryn Hill alongside William Byrd, or 2Pac with Pergolesi, as well as synth Bach-arrangements from Wendy Carlos (A Clockwork Orange soundtrack), Baroque Remix will combine the best of the music we love from across the centuries.
The evening will feature live sets from period instrumentalists Carla Rees (baroque flute) and Liam Byrne (viola da gamba) playing a mixture of old music and new. Live performances will showcase the diversity of these historic instruments, presenting baroque music alongside pop arrangements (Björk) and contemporary classical works (including music by Nico Muhly).
