The Presets to perform with orchestra

Electronic duo The Presets, who studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, are going back to their classical roots.

They team up with the Richard Tognetti-conducted Australian Chamber Orchestra for a series of audio-visual shows titled Timeline. They will perform works by Hildegard von Bingen, Gesualdo, Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Mozart, Bartók, Schoenberg, Reich, Jelly Roll Morton, Stravinsky, Ligeti, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd, Nirvana and Mariah Carey.

Famed Sydney and international events director Ignatius Jones will create the visuals.

“While we have enjoyed recognition in the contemporary music sector, our influences and our musical background have always been very broad, and have informed the music we create to this day,” Julian Hamilton and Kim Moyles said in a statement. “We were honoured to be asked to be contribute to Timeline – it’s a privilege to select so many meaningful works for the piece, and to work with the ACO.”

The dates take in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Wollongong from May 20 – June 4.
