The Can Project at The Barbican, London - live review
Venue: The Barbican, London
Irmin Schmidt teams up with London Symphony Orchestra and some very special guests
Irmin Schmidt had originally envisaged a career as an orchestral conductor until he applied himself to unlearning that tradition in the late 60s with Can. Since the group’s demise, he has become established as a composer – particularly of soundtracks – and tonight he conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in Can Dialog, co-composed with Gregor Schwellenbach.
