Gazelle Twin, artist

Hear the results of a collaboration between futuristic producer Gazelle Twin and composer Max de Wardener, played by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The collaboration brings a blend of traditional musical concepts and futuristic pop from Gazelle Twin’s critically acclaimed album Pastoral – called ‘extraordinary’ by The Quietus – to the full forces of the orchestra.

Gazelle Twin is the moniker for performance artist, composer and producer Elizabeth Bernholz, whose conceptual albums present dystopian themes through unconventional electronic production and extraordinary live performances featuring changing personas.

The Power and the Glory was commissioned by the BBC Concert Orchestra for the PRS New Music Biennale 2019

Performers
  • BBC Concert Orchestra
  • Robert Ames conductor
  • Elizabeth Bernholz (Gazelle Twin)
