“a rich and urgent new suite utterly in tune with Curtis’ vivid sense of urban isolation, but updated for the 21st century.”
“lush and monumental… a fine contemporary tribute to the band’s still-potent fusion of doomy melodrama and sleek modernism.”
“If Curtis hadn’t died you can’t help but wonder if this the kind of thing they would be doing today.”
“brutalist… romantic… imaginative”
The Sydney Morning Herald
Based on the music of Joy Division, reinterpreted by Scanner and Heritage Orchestra with visuals by Matt Watkins, Live_Transmission is a new audio-visual performance that pays homage to one of the worlds most progressive bands, taking audiences on a trip into a dismantled, electrified, and orchestrated world inspired by the music of Ian Curtis.
“Faithful but fresh – an essential outing”
“an intriguing tribute to the indie legends”
