MELBOURNE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA x
JEFF MILLS + DERRICK MAY
ANNOUNCE COLLABORATIVE LIVE ENCORE WITH MSO – LIVE ON STAGE TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER
+ ONSTAGE PRE-CONCERT INTERVIEW
With just two days until Detroit techno heavyweights Jeff Mills and Derrick May hit the stage at Sidney Myer Music Bowl with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) this Saturday night, Frontier Touring and Fünf are extremely excited to announce two new and very exciting pieces of information about the event.
Prior to the legendary DJs’ separate sets, both Jeff Mills and Derrick May will now commence proceedings with a 30 minute onstage interview led by Shaun Keyt.
Keyt, best known under the moniker of Viridan, has spent over 20 years immersed in music as a composer, live performer, sound designer, writer of film scores including the 2011 science fiction thriller Exit and lecturer at the School of Synthesis in South Yarra, Melbourne. Joining them for the interview will be arranger and composer Djizan Emin and Sarah Curro, first violin with the MSO.
Following what are guaranteed to be two spectacular separate live sets from Jeff Mills and Derrick May with the MSO, the audience will be treated to a collaborative encore set from the two legends of Detroit techno – Mills and May will perform together for the very first time in history, joined by the MSO. It is absolutely not to be missed!
Full set times are as follows:
On stage interview Jeff x Derrick 7:00pm
Jeff Mills 8:00pm
Derrick May 9:20pm
Jeff x Derrick Encore 10:30pm
