New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. was
commissioned by Manchester International Festival
with a worldwide premier on 29 June for MIF17.
Orchestrated and conducted by Joe, the shows feature
a 12 piece sythesiser orchestra from the Royal
Northern College of Music housed in an immersive
installation by acclaimed visual artist Liam Gillick
which reacts dynamically to the music. For the show
the band have worked with Joe to deconstruct, rethink
and rebuild a wealth of material from throughout their
career: familiar and obscure, old and new. Delighting
fans with songs that haven't been played live in 30
years the shows have received 5 star reviews and
critical acclaim across the board.
***** The Guardian
"There are emotional scenes as New Order revisit
their back catalogue on a grand scale with synth
orchestra, airing songs not heard for 30 years plus
rapturously received tributes to the band's fated
predecessor, Joy Division"
In May 2018 the show started it's overseas journey
with performances at OGR Torino in Turin and Wiener
Festwochen in Vienna.
