New Order’s collaboration with artist Liam Gillick was the hottest ticket at MIF17 and one of the most in-demand shows in Festival history. Now, for the lockdown, we’re thrilled to give you a chance to relive this MIF classic at 7.30pm on Friday 17 April, when we’ll be streaming an exclusive new edit online for free as part of our newly relaunched MIF Live series.
At MIF17, New Order took over Stage 1 of the iconic Old Granada Studios for a limited series of intimate shows created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick and composer-arranger Joe Duddell. Deconstructing, rethinking and rebuilding familiar and obscure material from throughout their career, the group were joined by a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music to perform it live in Liam Gillick’s extraordinary immersive stage set, which reacted dynamically to the music.
Winning universal acclaim from critics and audiences, New Order + Liam Gillick: So it goes.. played for just five unforgettable nights in July 2017. This one-night-only revival of the original live stream from the event began with a pre-recorded conversation between Dave Haslam and Liam Gillick and then joined the performance for the second half of the show.
Orchestrated & conducted by Joe Duddell
