Joy Division Reworked

“a rich and urgent new suite utterly in tune with Curtis’ vivid sense of urban isolation, but updated for the 21st century.”
The Scotsman

“lush and monumental… a fine contemporary tribute to the band’s still-potent fusion of doomy melodrama and sleek modernism.”
The Times

“If Curtis hadn’t died you can’t help but wonder if this the kind of thing they would be doing today.”
The Independent

“brutalist… romantic… imaginative”
The Sydney Morning Herald

Based on the music of Joy Division, reinterpreted by Scanner and Heritage Orchestra with visuals by Matt WatkinsLive_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.

Originally conceived by Laura Ducceschi and subsequently commissioned and produced by the Brighton Festival 2012.

“Faithful but fresh – an essential outing”
Time Out

“an intriguing tribute to the indie legends”

The UK Tour 21 September – 2 October 2013 was produced by the Heritage Orchestra in partnership with Flying Giant.
