Four synthesizers on stage, Carl Craig and Francesco Tristano.

After their debut at the Movement Festival in the hometown of Carl Craig in Detroit, the Versus Synthesizer Ensemble starts on Saturday May 17th at Sonar Festival / Sonar Lab stage in Barcelona a series of show in Europe. Watch in real time on Resident Advisor Facebook Live from 11.30 pm this Saturday.

While the original concert in 2008 counted more than 20 instruments on the stage (oboes, trombones, trompets, violins… and of cource a piano) of la Cité de la Musique in Paris, the 70-minute-long 2017 live performance celebrates the age of the almighty synthesizer. Recorded in Barcelona at Hiroshima in April 2017, this trailer unveils the men behind the scene, their search for sound perfection as well as a hint on the advanced technologies involved to enhance the show to a unique experience.
