André de Ridder conducts s t a r g a z e for a re-imagining of Hi Scores by Boards of Canada as part of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside.
Hi Scores is the legendary 1996 EP by the elusive Scottish electronic duo Boards of Canada. A near-perfect six-tracker of gorgeous, building ambient electro and loping downtempo electronic breakbeat it has been reimagined by Andre de Ridder and his ensemble with enormous elegance and originality.
s t a r g a z e is a Berlin based network of multi-talented and classically trained European musicians founded by the highly regarded conductor André de Ridder and Emanuel Florakis. In addition to operating as an orchestral collective since 2013, s t a r g a z e is also a group of curators initiating and commissioning collaborations and projects in the field of contemporary pop-, electronic and classical music, as well as programming concerts with compositions introducing different facets of today’s music to new audiences.
Performance times for this event are approximate and may be subject to change. Full details for this event will be announced on 2 May alongside the full line-up of artists performing as part of Light on The Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside. Tickets go on sale from 4 May 2018.
