After founding member Irmin Schmidt conducted the world premiere of Can Dialog, an orchestral reinterpretation of classic Can material alongside new work with the London Symphony Orchestra, an all-star band including Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore and Steve Shelley, Can’s first singer Malcolm Mooney, and My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe took the stage to perform a tribute to the band’s music.
