Kate Moross is one of the featured artists appearing as part of the Design Museum’s Covid-friendly virtual tour of their Electronic: From Kraftwerk to the Chemical Brothers exhibition. The tour is introduced by Tim Marlow, the Design Museum’s Chief Executive and Director, and hosted by co-curators of the exhibition.

Appearing alongside the likes of Jean-Michel Jarre and Weirdcore, Kate talks about how their own background as a club kid was the perfect grounding for their design involvement with The Warehouse Project, a roving club night in Manchester that started in 2006. Later, in 2019, Studio Moross were asked to help with the relaunch of the club at a new venue, The Depot, going on to create a film and set of posters for the campaign.

The exhibition itself takes you on a tour of the history of electronic music from early 20th century instruments, through the sonic experiments of the likes of the Radiophonic Workshop to its mainstream breakthrough via dance music and rave culture, where it continues to mutate to this day.
